Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0suppose a partitions a segment in the ratio 1:1 what does that mean? that both the partitioned parts are equal! that is, the point that partitions is a midpoint :) now what if a point partitions a segment in the ratio 3:1 ?? that means one of the partition is 3 times longer than the other! dw:1439545954472:dw
