**Question 1.**Draw the incircle of ΔABC, where AB = 9cm, BC = 7cm, and AC = 6cm.

**Answer:**We need to know about what is incircle.

When a circle is completely inscribed in any figures (square, rectangle, triangle, etc.,). Then that is known as incircle. Radius of that circle is known as Inradius.

Draw a line segment AB with 9cm and take that as base. Take B as Centre and draw an arc with 7cm radius, taking A as Centre draw an arc with 6 cm that should cut the previous arc. Name the intersection point as C and connect it to A, B. Thus triangle is formed.
