Example 6 Find the coordinates of the point which divides the line segment joining the points (4, โ 3) and (8, 5) in the ratio 3 : 1 internally. Let the given points be A(4, โ3) & B(8, 5) Let the point be P(x, y) which divides AB in ratio 3 : 1 Finding x x = (๐1 ๐ฅ2 + ๐2 ๐ฅ1)/(๐1 + ๐2) Where, m1 = 3, m2 = 1 x1 = 4, x2 = 8 Putting values x = (3 ร 8 + 1 ร4)/(3 + 1) x = (24 + 4)/4 x = 28/4 x = 7 Finding y y = (๐1 ๐ฆ2 + ๐2 ๐ฆ1)/(๐1 + ๐2) Where, m1 = 3, m2 = 1 y1 = โ3, y2 = 5 Putting values y = (3 ร 5 + 1 รโ3)/(3 +1 ) y = (15 โ 3 )/4 y = (12 )/4 y = 3 Hence x = 7, y = 3 So, the required point is P(x, y) = P(7, 3)
