    well hmmm if you have 1 tomato, and you sister has 2 tomatoes and for every tomato I give you, I give your sister 2 tomatoes so you have 2, she gets 4 you have 3, she gets 6 you have 4, she gets 8 and so on so... what do you think is the "ratio" of her tomatoes to yours?

    yeap.... 2:1 two to 1, for every one for you, she gets 2 thus 3:1 means, for every 3 for one side, the other side gets 1 so, there are really 4 sides then and point Q is closer to one of the endpoints by 1/4 and 3/4 away from the other

    so that means the segment AC gets split in 4 parts then, to get a 3:1 ratio now is it from A to C or C to A well, judging from the wording I'd think is from A to C so the segment AC gets partition in 4 parts, and from A to C is on a 3:1 ratio

    |dw:1439510115855:dw| notice, 4 parts AQ takes 3 QC takes 1 3 to 1, from A to C or 3:1 ratio

    3:1 means 3/4 and 1/4 of the total length. To go 3/4 from A to C: find the difference in x and go 3/4 toward C (3/4)(4-2) = 1.5, so use x'=2+1.5 = 3.5 find the difference in y and go 3/4 toward C. you do this one. y' = ??? point will then be (x', y')
