Partition Line Segments Practice

Use the applet below to practice partitioning line segments. Example 1 is selected. Move points A & B to the given coordinates. There is a 3rd unlabeled point that will also be moved. Place that point so that it would form a right triangle with points A & B. You can click the Rise & Run check boxes to reveal the values of each. You will need to input the given ratio in the boxes provided below. The checkboxes on the right reveal steps in partitioning each segment.
