 OnSegment
 Find the point which divides the segment joining two given points by some ratio Calling Sequence OnSegment(C, A, B, k) OnSegment(C, seg, k) Parameters

 C - the name of the point to be created A, B - two points seg - segment k - ratio Description

 • The routine returns point C which is the point lying on the segment defined by two points A, B with ratio k
 • For a detailed description of point C, use the routine detail (i.e., detail(C))
 • The command with(geom3d,OnSegment) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command. Examples
