Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Divide the line segment into 4 parts. This is so that one segment is 1 part and the other segment is 3 parts. This makes the ratio 1:3.

36/4=9=1 part

The first segment is length 9 and the second segment is 9*3=27 (because it is 3 parts).

segment 1 = 9

segment 2 = 27

These segments add to 36 the original length. 9+27=36.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
