Drawing Parallel Lines with SetSquares
To draw a line segment through a point T, parallel to line PQ.
There are two setsquares in your geometry box.
Take one of the setsquare and place its edge along PQ as shown in the figure 1.
Place the other setsquare along the first setsquare as shown in the figure 2.
Now, slide the first setsquare until its edge comes to pass through the given point T.
Draw the line RS passing through the point T as shown in the figure 3.
