Answer :

Step1: Draw a line segment AB of length 5.6 cm

Step2: Draw a line AC at any angle below AB

Step3: take any distance in compass and keep the needle of the compass on point A and draw an arc intersecting the line AC. Name the intersection point as X_{1}. Keeping the distance same in compass keep the needle on point X_{1} and mark an arc intersecting AC at X_{2}. Draw 13 (5:8 given ratio 5 + 8 = 13) such parts i.e. upto X_{13}

Step4: Join points X_{13} and B

Now we have to divide the segment AB in ratio 5:8, i.e. 5 parts and 8 parts.

Step5: from point, X_{5} draw a line parallel to BX_{13} intersecting AB at D, and we have divided the segment AB in ratio 5:8

And measure the length of parts, i.e. AD and DB which are 2.2 cm and 3.4 cm respectively
