[Tex/LaTex] Divide the page into 2 parts


I have text, formulas and an enumeration. I tried to use multicols, but it divides the text where it wants. I used tabular, but it don't allow to have an enumeration or I don't know how to do it.
In other words, I want to divide some piece of the page into 2 parts as it is shown in the picture:

I also want to save an enumeration. See also the border and alignment of the second part of the page. How can I do it in LaTeX?

You can use a minipage to achieve this along with a tabular. This method will not break across the pages though.

  \item First item \\
        This is the second line in item and this may extend to third if long
  \item second item\ldots
This is second part \\
$f(x) = 2x + 3y$ This line may go all along the end and wrap afterwards to the next as seen here\\
This is a forced next line by ending the previous line

It seems the other possibility is with parallel package.

Here we use \texttt{parallel} package.
This is the left side.
  \item { First item}
  \item{second item}
And you are back in business.\\
This list can break across pages automatically }
This goes to the right. This may be going long. If you want you can input equations also.\\
This may be the best choice if you want this kind of thing to span multiple pages. }
