    |dw:1434449280813:dw| If the lengths are in 1:4 ratio then the line is divided into 1/5 and 4/5 You can see that this is also true of the 'x' side, and the 'y' side So find the length of the 2 sides and divide them by 5 you can see how to get M by adding 4/5 of the length to the starting point....
