Construction : 1 Mark
Steps of construction : 1 Mark
Steps of construction:
1. Draw a line segment AB of length 8cm.
2. From A, draw a ray AX and cut 7 arcs (4+3) of equal length on it.
3. Name the points as A1,A2,....A7 where the arcs intersect the ray AX.
4. Join A7B.
5. Draw a line through A4 parallel to A7B, cutting AB at C.
6. C divides the line segment AB in the ratio 4 : 3
