Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"segment in a 3:1 ratio" means we have 3+1 = 4 parts total so cut vertical and horizontal segments into 4 equal parts dw:1434598057496:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so now i divide 2 by 3 right (:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the horizontal length 2 gets cut into 4 equal parts 2/4 = 1/2 = 0.5 so each little piece along the horizontal portion is 0.5 units long dw:1434598108224:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since we want 3:1 ratio, we go 3 parts in the horizontal direction to land here dw:1434598197534:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we'll do the same for the vertical component the vertical component is 3 units high cut that into 4 parts 3/4 = 0.75 each vertical tiny piece is 0.75 units dw:1434598214545:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and we go up 3 units 3*0.75 = 2.25 add 2.25 to the y coordinate of A 1+2.25 = 1.25 so y = 1.25 dw:1434598278518:dw
