# The abscissa at the point P which divides the line segment joining two point s A(1, 5), B(–4, 7) internally in the ratio 2: 3 is

A. –1

B. 11

C. 1

D. –11

Answer :

Let the co-ordinates of the point which divides the line segment be (x, y) –

We know, abscissa is x – coordinate of any point .

We know, By section formula

⇒ x = – 1
