Can you draw a line of length 2.25 centimetres using a ruler? How about using ruler and compass?

Yes, we can use a ruler to create a line segment that is 2.25 cm long.

Using a ruler and compass, a line segment's perpendicular bisector may be used to draw a line segment of length 2.25 cm.

The following are the building process steps:

1) Sketch a 4.5 cm long line segment AB.

2) Mark arcs on the upper and lower sides of AB with a radius that is greater than half the length of AB, with the centers A and B. The intersection's points are C and D, respectively.

3) Connect CD and designate E as the location where the line AB is broken.

The resulting line segment AE measures 2.25 cm in length.
