How to split an existing partition?

Question from a beginner.
Installed Ubuntu, when you install creates two partitions: as I understand what the boot and the main (installed Ubuntu).
Is it possible now to split a primary partition for another partition and tell one of them to change the file system?
How to do it?

No. Is root (root) and swap (swap).

It is necessary to reduce the size of the root and the freed space to create a new partition. Made it through a Live CD with Gparted.

Good evening.
Of course you can.
With the help of gparted.
Launch, enter password on the selected tab, right-click and choose "Modify partition/Move." Opens a window where You can select a new partition size. Free some volume. Apply the changes. Then on the free space create a new partition. When you create can change the file system. Only do I need to change?
If gparted in not installed on the system, then in the console run the command
sudo apt-get gparted intsll
a console program is not present? - gudrun.Lark commented on March 19th 20 at 08:51
@gudrun.Larkand what is wrong with gparted?
You can via console, but will be worn out. - Rosemary commented on March 19th 20 at 08:54
the root partition under the operating system not to change.
it is better to use live-SD - joannie commented on March 19th 20 at 08:57
