The steps of constructions are:

(a) Draw an angle 70 degrees with a protractor, i.e., ∠POQ = 70 degrees

(b) Draw a ray AB.

(c) Place the compasses at O and draw an arc to cut the rays of ∠POQ at L and M.

(d) Use the same compasses, setting to draw an arc with A as the centre, cutting AB at X.

(e) Set your compasses setting to the length LM with the same radius.

(f) Place the compasses pointer at X and draw the arc to cut the arc drawn earlier at Y.

(g) Join AY. Thus, ∠YAX = 70 degree
