Q. 5

# Find the ratio in

A point P(x,y) divides the line formed by points (a,b) and (c,d) in the ratio of m:n, then the coordinates of the point P is given by and In the given question,

Let the point P divide AB is the ratio 1:k

Y coordinate of P Simplifying

7k + 7 = 9k + 2

2k = 5

k = and the ratio = 1: = Therefore point P divides AB in the ratio 2:5
