Answer :

Let the points be P(x,y), Using the section formula

\(P(x, y) = [\frac{mx_2 + nx_1}{m + n} , \frac{my_2 + ny_1}{m + n}]\)

\(x = {{2(4) + 3(-1)} \over {2 + 3}} = {{8 - 3} \over {5}} = 1\)

\(y = {{2(-3) + 3(7)} \over {2 + 3}} = {{-6 + 21} \over {5}} = 3\)

Therefore the point is(1,3)

- Find the coordinates of the points of trisection of the line segment joining (4, -1) and (-2, -3).
- To conduct Sports Day activities, in your rectangular shaped school ground ABCD, lines have been drawn with chalk powder at a distance of 1 m each. 100 flower pots have been placed at a distance of 1 m from each other along AD, as shown in the following figure. Niharika runs \(\frac{1}{4} \) th the distance AD on the 2nd line and posts a green flag. Preet runs \(\frac{1}{5} \)th the distance AD on the eighth line and posts a red flag. What is the distance between both the flags? If Rashmi has to post a blue flag exactly halfway between the line segment joining the two flags, where should she post her flag?
- Find the ratio in which the line segment joining the points (-3, 10) and (6, – 8) is divided by (-1, 6).
- Find the ratio in which the line segment joining A (1, – 5) and B (- 4, 5) is divided by the x-axis. Also find the coordinates of the point of division.
- If (1, 2), (4, y), (x, 6) and (3, 5) are the vertices of a parallelogram taken in order, find x and y.
- Find the coordinates of a point A, where AB is the diameter of circle whose centre is (2, – 3) and B is (1,4).
- If A and B are (-2, -2) and (2, -4), respectively, find the coordinates of P such that AP = \(\frac{3}{7} \) AB and P lies on the line segment AB.
- Find the coordinates of the points which divide the line segment joining A (- 2, 2) and B (2, 8) into four equal parts.
- Find the area of a rhombus if its vertices are (3, 0), (4, 5), (-1, 4) and (-2,-1) taken in order. [Hint: Area of a rhombus = \(\frac{1}{2} \) (product of its diagonals)
