Division, ContinuedAn alternatemethod ofproportionallydividing linesinto partsFor an alternate method of proportionally dividing lines, use this table:StepAction1Given line AB, draw another line (CD) at any distance below andparallel to the given line.2Set your scale along CD with 0 at endpoint C and set off thedesired number of increments. Here the increments are 0, 2, 5, and9.3With a straightedge, draw lines through endpoints A and C (0) andB and D(9) to intersect (0) any distance above AB.4Using your straightedge, connect lines 2 and 5 to 0.Figure 2-23 is an alternate method for proportionally dividing lines.Figure 2-23.—An alternate method of dividing a lineproportionately.2-24
