ok... so are you being asked to find the point that divided the interval in the ratio 3:4

yes

ok... so the ratio is 3:4 the ratio is m:n and the points are E, F then the formula is \[y = \frac{n \times y_{F} + m \times y_{E}}{m + n} \]

so if you have a point P between E and F then using fractions \[\frac{EP}{PF} = \frac{3}{4}\] so after crossing multiplying 4EP = 3PF that's provided its an internal division
