Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Put yet another way... Let say AB start at 0 and the entire length from A to D is 1, then x= length of AB y= length of CD z = length of BC x+y+z=1 z/3+z/3+z=1 z(2/3 + 1) = 1 z=1/(5/3)=3/5 so x=y=1/5 So the coordinate of C is x+z=1/5 + 3/5 = 4/5 But in reality, AB starts at 1/3 and the entire length is (1/2  1/3) = 1/6 So coordinate C is at 1/3 + (4/5) * (1/6) = 1/3 + 2/15 = 7/15 . Make sense?
