# can we divide a line segment in ratio root 2:1 by root 2

$\sqrt{2}:1/\sqrt{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{\sqrt{2}}{{\displaystyle \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{\frac{\sqrt{2}}{{\displaystyle 1}}}{\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{\sqrt{2}}{1}\times \frac{\sqrt{2}}{1}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{2}{1}$

Thus the line segment is to be divided in the ratio 2:1.
