In this we are asked to divide it in 2:3 ratio
So, 3+2 = 5
5, number congruent of line segment is formed.
i. Firstly, we have to draw a line segment AB of length 7 cm. Draw a line with an acute angle from point A
ii. Point the compass on A, and cut the new line with some radius
place the compass along the line and make 5 arcs. Since we need 5 congruent parts, and name the last one as “G”
iii. Take length of BG as radius draw an arc from A just below it.
Again, take the length of AG as radius and draw an arc which cuts the previous arc from B, name the intersection point as H
Connect B and H
iv. Taking the same length that we used in line AG, draw arcs along BH and name the points.
v. Connect the points along AG and BH. Name the intercepts on the line AB as M, N, O & P.
vi. Thus we can divide a line segment as AO:OB = 6:4
