Q. 1 D3.8( 9 Votes )

Find the co-ordinates of the point which divides the line segment joining two point s in the given ratio for the following:

(3, 2) and (6, 5); in the ratio 2: 1 externally

Answer :

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

And, we know, By section formula



(Where, m and n are the ratios, (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are the coordinates of the line segment.)




x = 10


And,




y = 8


the co-ordinates of the point which divides the line segment joining two point s in the given ratio is (10, 8).
