| **Point A divides the segment CD in a ratio of 3: 4. Find the length of the segment CD if the length of the segment CA is 15 cm.**

The total length of the CD segment is calculated as follows:

CD = CA + AD

It is known from the problem statement that CA / AD = 3 / 4. Knowing the length of the segment CA, we can calculate the length of the segment AD:

AD = CA * 4/3 = 15 * 4/3 = 20 cm.

Next, we find the length of the segment CD:

CD = 15 + 20 = 35 cm.

Answer: The length of the CD cut is 35 cm.
