(−1.25, 2.5) (−0.5, 1) (2.25, −0.5) (0.5, 2)
@ganeshie8 here is the post question
@ganeshie8 will you please help me with this question
hey still here @sksxs3
look at the given line segment, you want to find a point on it that splits the segment in 3:1 ratio |dw:1435244383121:dw|
ok so how do i do that
how far are the points horizontally ? |dw:1435244482276:dw|
just count he grids horizontally
Yes, so we want the point to be at 3/4*7 away from J horizontally 3/4*7 = ?
can i turn 3/4 into a decimal then multiple it by 7 or will that be to complicated
Exactly! just do that.
I did 0.75 x 7= 5.25
add -3 to that
5.25 - 3 = ?
Yes, thats the x coordinate of required point. look at options
so the answer is C because thats the only one with 2.25 in it
Quick question if you don't mind me asking… do you think you could quickly show me how to find the y coordinate because I am not the best with ratios and I would really appreciate it if you showed me how?!! thanks @ganeshie8
sure :) how far are the points J and K vertically ? |dw:1435245688565:dw|
oh sorry i didn't see u respond its 6 spaces
Yes, so you want the point to be 3/4*6 away from J 3/4*6 = ?
then don't you subtract 3 from that or no
subtract that from y coordinate of J : 4 4-4.5 = ?
Thank so much for your help @ganeshie8 I will give you a medal to for helping me thank you
btw were u the one who gave me the medal @ganeshie8
cause if u were than thank you
