Co-ordinates-- (-4,-6) (10,12)
by using section formula--- where points are (o,y)
therefore 19k-4/k+1 = 0
ratio-- 2:5
1 5 1
ratio = 2:5
therefore , if ratio = 2:5, point of division is (0,y). by using section formula , 24-30/5+2=y . y= -6/7 point of division is (0,-6/7)
thanx for de ans
He is right, the ratio is actually 2:5
ya he is right
