In what ratio doe

Answer :

Given points :


P(2, -2) Q(3, 7) and


Let A divides line segment joining the coordinates P and Q in k : 1


And using the section formula,


i.e. the coordinates of point A(x, y) dividing a line segment joining two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) in m : n is



So, using the given values in the above formula, we get




Here we get


and


24k + 24 = 33k + 22


9k = 2



And using this, we get



Therefore, A divides PQ in k : 1 i.e. 2 : 9.
