The point P which

Answer :

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.
