Find the ratio in

Answer :

Let the point which cuts the join of A(4, 5), and B(-10, -2) in the ratio k : 1 be P(x, 0)


Formula: If k : 1 is the ratio in which the join of two points is divided by another point (x, y), then




Taking for the y co-ordinate,



2k = 5



Therefore,




x = -6


Therefore, the ratio in which x-axis cuts the join of the points A(4, 5) and B(-10, -2) is 5 : 2and the point of intersection is (-6, 0).
