Steps of construction:

Step 1: Draw a line segment XY of 12cm.

Step 2: Draw DXY = B = 45o and EYX = C = 60o

Step 3: Draw the angle bisectors of angles of DXY and EYX which intersects each other at A.

Step 4: Draw the perpendicular of AX and AY which intersect XY at B and C respectively.

Step 5: Join AB and AC

Therefore  Δ ABC is the required triangle
