The point P which
If P(x, y) is the dividing point of the line joining AB then By Section Formula we have,
⇒ where m and n is the ratio in which the point C divides the line AB
Finding the x-coordinate of P:
⇒ x = 16/3
Finding the y-coordinate of P:
⇒ y = -11/3
Therefore the coordinates of P is (16/3, -11/3).
Since in fourth quadrant x-coordinate is positive and y-coordinate is negative.
Therefore the point P lies in the fourth quadrant.
