1. Draw a line segment AB of length 8.3cm.
2. Draw a ray AX making an acute angle with AB.
3. As we have to divide the line such that AC = AB /3, we will divide AX in three equal parts.
4. Taking A as center, cut an arc on AX. Mark the point as A1.
5. Now, with A1 as center and same radius cut an arc on AX. Continue till A3.
6. Join A3 to B.
7. Now draw a line from point A1 parallel to A3B.
8. The point where it cuts AB is C.
9. AC:AB = 1:3
