Answer :

By section formula which states that if a point P(x,y) divides the line with endpoints A(x1,y1) and B(x2,y2) in the ration m:n, the coordinates of x and y are:

If the segment is divided by the x-axis then the point at x-axis is (x, 0).

Let, the ratio of segment AB be m : 1.

So, the ratio is 3 : 5.

So, the x-coordinate is .
