Steps of construction:

1. Make a line segment by with the help of ruler.

2. Through the points A and B draw two parallel line on the opposite side of AB and making the same acute angles with the line segment.

3. Divide equal parts on AX and equal parts on BY such that and

4.Then ,join which intersects AB at P

Hence, .

Justification:

In and , we have

[vertically opposite angle]

[alternate interior angle]

[Because AA similarity]
