Construction

To divide a line segment in a given ratio.(lets say m:n).
Let AB line has to divide in 3:2 ratio. Here m=3 and n=2.

• Draw a ray AX making acute angle with AB.
• Locate m + n point on AX such that for all points.
• Join BAm + n .
• Draw a line A3C from A3 to AB which is parallel to BX.
• AC and CB are the desired ratio (here 3:2) in which line has to be divided.

To construct the pair of tangents from an external point to a circle.
If we have to draw a tangent from point A to a given circle of center O, then.

• Draw a line AN.

Proof :
Since in a triangle the line drawn parallel to one side of the triangle divides other two sides
proportionally, ∴ In ΔAA5B, A2 P || A5B
