# how to draw 5root2 on number line

-Draw a number line and mark points O, A, B, C, D, E such that OA = AB = BC = CD = DE = 1 unit. Hence, OE = 5 units.

-At point E, draw a perpendicular TE such that TE = 1 unit.

-Now, join TD.

-Take E as center and radius = TD unit, draw an arc cutting the number line at Q.

– Thus, OQ represents 5√2.
