  1. You are making a scale diagram : )
    So if you use your compass and ruler you will be able to measure the length of PB : )

  2. Draw line segment AB
    Construct angle A (bisect a right angle).
    Extend the side of A to 9 cm, and mark that point C.
    Draw line segment BC.
    Draw a circle of radius 5 with center A
    Construct the ⊥ bisector of BC
    P will lie on the ⊥ bisector of BC, where it intersects the circle centered at A, inside ABC.
