P and Q are the p
As, PQ = PR + RQ
⇒ PR : RQ = 2 : 3
i.e. R divides PQ in 2 : 3
Using section formula, i.e.
The coordinates of Point R which divides line PQ in a ration m : n is
Where, (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are the coordinates of points P and Q respectively.
We have, P(2, -1), Q(-3, 4) and ratio is 2 : 3
Hence, coordinates of R is (0, 1)
