Steps of construction :

  1. Draw a line MN = 5.8 cm
  2. With M as centre and radius = 4.5 cm, draw an arc.
  3. With N as centre draw another arc of radius 5 cm. These arcs intersect each other at A.
  4. Join AM and AN.
  5. At point A, draw ∠DAN = ∠ANM
  6. Produce DA to any point C.
    Thus CAD is the required parallel line.
