Construction:

1. Draw a line segment AB = 10 cm

2. With A and B as centres and a radius more than half of AB, draw arcs on both side of the line segment AB, cutting each other at M and N respectively.

3. Join MN which intersect AB at L. 

Hence, L bisect AB.

By measuring we can say AL = BL = 5 cm.
