Steps :

  1. Draw AB = 6 cm.
  2. At A draw ∠QAB = 60°.
  3. From AQ cut AD = 3 cm.
  4. From D, draw an arc of radius 6 cm.
  5. From B, draw an arc of radius 3 cm which meets the first arc at C.
  6. Join CD and BC.
    Thus ABCD is the required ||gm.
  7. Bisect ∠DAB, so that bisector meets CD at P.
  8. Join PB and measure ZAPB.
    ∴ ∠APB = 90°.
