Find the coordinates of the point which divides the join of (- 1, 7) and (4, – 3) in the ratio 2:3.

##### Solution :-

Let P(x, y) be the required point. Using the section formula, we get

x = $$\dfrac{ (2×4 + 3×(-1))}{(2 + 3)}= \dfrac{(8 – 3)}{5}=1$$

y = $$\dfrac{(2×-3 + 3×7)}{(2 + 3)}= \dfrac{(-6 + 21)}{5}=3$$

Therefore, the point is (1, 3).
