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

The ratio of the partial segments in the known segment is 5/6 which is the length of the outside segment divided the inside segment.

This ratio holds for the other line segment.

5/6=3/k Cross multiply to solve for k. (Multiply the numerator of one side with the denominator of the other side of the equation)

5k=18 Divide both sides by 5

k=18/5=3.6 The answer is C.

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