This tool helps you calculate the ratio of directed line segments with ease.

## Calculator Explanation

This calculator computes the ratio of two directed line segments using their coordinates.

### How to Use the Calculator

- Enter the coordinates (X1, Y1) and (X2, Y2) of the first and second points of the line segment.
- Enter the coordinates (X, Y) which is the point whose ratio is to be determined.
- Click the ‘Calculate’ button.
- The result will display the calculated ratio in the result field.

### Calculation Method

The ratio is calculated using the formula for the ratio of directed line segments:
`ratio = ((y - y1) / (y2 - y1)) / ((x - x1) / (x2 - x1))`

. The result gives the proportional relationship between the segments.

### Limitations

This calculator assumes straight-line segments and does not account for curvature or any advanced geometric configurations. Input values should be numerical and valid for meaningful results.
