Hint: Use rounder and scale to construct the arc.
Steps of construction: -
$\left( i \right)$ Draw a line segment which is sufficiently long using a ruler.
$\left( {ii} \right)$ Locate points P and Q on it such that $PQ = 5.5cm$.
$\left( {iii} \right)$ With P as center and radius $5.5cm$, draw an arc (see figure).
$\left( {iv} \right)$ With Q as center and radius $5.5cm$, draw another arc cutting the previous arc at R.
$\left( v \right)$ Join PR and QR
PQR is the required equilateral triangle.
