Steps of construction:
1. Draw a triangle ABC of any measure.
2. Taking C as a center and a small radius draw an arc which cut CB and CA at P and Q respectively.
3. With same radius and centre A draw an arc which cut AC at R.
4. Measure the arc PQ using compass and cut the same arc length RS.
5. Join AS and extend to X.
6. AX is the required parallel line.

- Draw a line parallel to a given line AB at a distance of 2.5 cm.
- Draw a line l, take a point A above it. Construct a line through A and parallel to l.
- Draw a line segment AB, take a point P below it. Through P draw a line parallel to AB using ruler and compass only.
- Draw a line AB and then construct another line parallel to AB which is 4 cm above it.
- Draw a line AB and then construct another line parallel to AB which is 3 cm below it.
- Draw a line segment AB = 6 cm. Draw a line CD parallel to AB such that distance between AB and CD is 5 cm.
- Draw two parallel lines AB and XY such that distance between them is 2 cm.
- Draw an angle ABC of 60o such that BC = 3 cm, through C draw a line parallel to AB.
