Draw a line MN = 5.8 cm. Locate a point A which is 4.5 cm from M and 5 cm from N. Through A draw a line parallel to line MN.
Steps of construction :
- Draw a line MN = 5.8 cm
- With M as centre and radius = 4.5 cm, draw an arc.
- With N as centre draw another arc of radius 5 cm. These arcs intersect each other at A.
- Join AM and AN.
- At point A, draw ∠DAN = ∠ANM
- Produce DA to any point C.
Thus CAD is the required parallel line.
