# A point C with z-

Answer :

Given: A point C with z-coordinate 8 lies on the line segment joining the points A(2, -3, 4) and B(8, 0, 10)

To find: the coordinates of C

Formula used:

Section Formula:

A line AB is divided by C in m:n where A(x, y, z) and B(a, b, c). The coordinates of C is given by, Let Point C(x, y, 8), and C divides AB in ratio k: 1

Therefore, m = k and n = 1

A(2, -3, 4) and B(8, 0, 10) Coordinates of C using section formula:  On comparing: 10k + 4 = 8(k + 1)

10k + 4 = 8k + 8

10k – 8k = 8 – 4

2k = 4 k = 2

Here C divides AB in ratio 2:1    x = 6   y = -1

Hence, Coordinates of C are (6, -1, 8)
