Segment length - Geogebra Geometry

Hi please can you tell me how can I create a segment (a) with a length which is defined by the length of another segment (b) in the construction. The length of segment (b) is dynamic and is dependent on the results of another, completely separate calculation. thanks

Use the Tool or Command Segment( <Point>, <Length> ). For the parameter 'Length' you just type 'b', for Point, use or create a starting point. When segment b changes, the dependent segment will adapt too.
