1.Draw a ray PX making acute angle with PQ line of 7cm

2.Locate 7 points such that distance between each point is equal named P1​,P2​,P3​,P4​,P5​,P6​,P7

3.Join QP7​

4.Through point P3​ draw a line parallel to line QP7​ at P3​ intersecting PQ at pinot A then PA : AQ is 3 : 4

Ratio 3 : 4 = 3 + 4 = 7

The point A divides PQ

∴ PA : AQ = 3 : 4
