Answer :

We know that any point on y axis is in the form (0, x) where x is any real number, let y axis intersect the line segment AB at point P with coordinates (0, c)

And we have

Coordinates of A = (– 3, 2)

Coordinates of B = (6, 1)

Let P divides AB in K:1

Now, By using section formula i.e.

The coordinates of Point P which divides line AB in a ration m : n is

Where, (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are the coordinates of points A and B respectively.


Coordinates of P


P divides AB in 2:1
