Step 1: Draw a line segment

            EXAMPLE:  AB = 7.6 cm.


Step 2: Draw a ray (AX) which makes an acute angle with line segment (AB).


Step 3: With ‘A’ as centre and with any length draw an arc on ray AX and

           label the point A_1


Step 4: Using the same compass setting and with A_1 as centre draw another arc and locate A_2.

          


NOTE:  Like this locate 13 points (m + n) = (5 + 8)

A_1,\ \ A_2,\ \ A_3,\ \ A_{4..............}A_{13} such that AA_1\ =A_1A_2=A_2A_3=\ A_3A_4.................................A_{12}A_{13}


Step 5: Join A13 to B.

               NOTE: See the figure in step 6


Step  6: Through the point A_5, draw a line A_5C || A_13B; which intersects AB at point C.


           NOTE: We get; AC : CB = 5 : 8

                     AC = 2.92 cm and CB = 4.68 cm
