**Steps of Construction:**

**Step I:** Draw BC = 5 cm.

**Step II:** With B as centre and radius BA = 7 cm, draw an arc.

**Step III:** With C as centre and radius CA = 6 cm, draw another arc, intersecting the arc drawn in step 2 at A.

**Step IV:** Join AB and AC to obtain ∆ABC.

**Step V:** Below BC, make an acute angle ∠CBX.

**Step VI:** Mark seven points as B_{1} B_{2}, B_{3}, B_{4}, B_{5}, B_{6} and B_{7} on BX, such that BB_{1} = B_{1}B_{2} and so on.
