Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically, you subtract y1 and y (and x1 and x) then divide it by the ratio 2:1, 2+1=3. So you divide it by 3. dw:1438973308499:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So for x, I got 2. Now what you want to do is subtract 2 from 7 (x2).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you get 1, for Y, then add 41 (3) to it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And for y, since the ratio is 2:1, then you have to add 1 to 4 two times. So, it would be 4+(1)+(1). For me, I'd go to the closest point, F then subtract 1. 1(1)=. It's still the same though.
