Find the coordina

Answer :

Let P(x, y) be the point that divides the join of A(-5, 11) and B(4, -7) in the ratio 2 : 7


Formula: If m1 : m2 is the ratio in which the join of two points is divided by another point (x, y), then




Here, x1 = -5, x2 = 4, y1 = 11 and y2 = -7


Substituting,





x = -3





y = 8


Therefore, the coordinates of the point which divided the join of A(-5, 11) and B(4, -7) in the ratio 2 : 7 is (-3, 8).
