Division Of A Line Segment Into A Given Ratio Given a line segment AB, we want to divide it in the ratio m : n, where both m and n are positive integers. To help you to understand it, we shall take m = 3 and n = 2. Steps of Construction: 1. Draw any ray AX, making an acute angle with AB. 2. Locate 5(= m + n) points A1, A2, A3, A4 and A5 on AX so that AA1 = A1A2 = … [Read more...] about Division Of A Line Segment Into A Given Ratio
