Lesson: Partitioning a Line Segment on the Coordinate Plane Mathematics
In this lesson, we will learn how to find the coordinates of a point that divides a line segment on the coordinate plane with a ratio using the section formula.
If the coordinates of and are and respectively, find the coordinates of the point that divides internally by the ratio .
The coordinates of points and are and respectively. Given that intersects the -axis at and the -axis at , find the ratio by which is divided by points and respectively showing the type of division in each case.
The coordinates of and are and respectively. Determine the coordinates of the points that divide into four equal parts.
