5. To measure the thickness of a coin.
Take ten coins and put them one over another. Find the total thickness of ten coins with the help of a scale. Divide the total thickness by the number of coins.
6. To measure the length of any curved line using divider
To measure the length of curved lines we have to use divider. Let there be a curved line AB. Open the legs ofthe divider to cover some convenient distance, say 5 mm. Place one leg of the divider at one. End of the curved line. Put the other leg on the line. Now count the number of times the divider has to be taken along the line to cover the entire length of line AB. At the end, some portion of line may be left out, being less than the distance between the two legs. Measure it separately by adjusting the divider. Multiply the number of complete steps by the distance between the two legs. Add the length of the remaining distance to this length. You will get the total length of curved line.
