3:1 ratio is 4 pieces. We can find the length of each partition in the x and y directions. For x the partition length is \(\frac{ 4-2 }{ 4 }\) and for y it's \(\frac{ 2-(-1) }{ 4 }\). Start by simplifying those

so x being 2/4 and y 3/4 ?
anonymous

yes. and you can reduce x to ½. Since Q is closer to C, you can subtract those from the coordinates of C. \[(4-\frac{ 1 }{ 2},2-\frac{ 3 }{ 4 })\]

Alternatively, you could add them to A 3 times since A is 3 partitions away. Either way you'll get the same result.
