# Find the coordinates of the point which divides the join of (–1, 7) and (4, –3) in the ratio 2: 3

Answer :

If (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) are points that are divided in ratio m:n then,

Let D(*x*, *y*) be the required point.

Now,

Using the section formula, we get

x = 1

y =

y = 3

Therefore, the point is (1, 3)
