help pleasee
A segment with endpoints A (3, 4) and C (5, 11) is partitioned by a point B such that AB and BC form a 2:3 ratio. Find B.
(3.8, 6.8)
(3.9, 4.8)
(4.2, 5.6)
(4.3, 5.9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02 equation, 2unknows The distance between the points is known, let it be d So the distance A and B =2d/3...1 The distance BC =d/3 By these two eqautions, both unknowns(x,y coordinates) can be found

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure if what you're is okay, but surely the distance will device to 3 parts, not 5. That is, one third and two thirds

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm I'm thinking of a different way but I get what you mean.. I'll try your method and see if I'll get the same thing.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops sorry, I'm talking to ahmad.. and no, it shouldn't be 2/5. distance of AB= 2/3 and BC= 1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, because it is not exactly referring to the actual distance. It only shows the scale on how far is A to B and C to B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops sorry I lost my connection So we'll do the xcoordinate first, bx. (bxax) : (cx  bx ) = 2 : 3 (bx  3): ( 5  bx) = 2:3 it will be 3(bx3) = 2(5bx) 3bx  9 = 10 2 bx 5 bx = 19 bx = 19/5 Now, you do the same thing for by

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(byay) : (cyby) = 2:3 (by4) : (11by) = 2:3 I think the easiest way for you is turn the ratios into fraction dw:1435173012809:dw
