3. Move the 3rd unlabeled point so that it would form a right triangle .
4. Click the Rise & Run (in the red) check boxes to reveal the values of rise and run.
5. Input the given ratio (in light blue) in the boxes provided below.
6. Click the 3 remaining check boxes to see how the segment is partitioned into the ratio you input.
**Please take notes for these 4 examples.**
