can you help me with this ^^^^^^
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
hers 2:1
anonymous
  • anonymous
@jdoe0001
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
ookay is that the answer
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
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
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
|dw:1439510115855:dw| notice, 4 parts AQ takes 3 QC takes 1 3 to 1, from A to C or 3:1 ratio
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
|dw:1439510186061:dw| so there's where Q is at now... what's that point well....
anonymous
  • anonymous
so what the answer @jdoe0001
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
hmm nope
anonymous
  • anonymous
its 5,3
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
|dw:1439510294580:dw| so, keeping that in mind hmm 5,3? how did you get it anyway?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i saw C was 4,2 so i thought 5,3
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
hmm well... keeping the above in mind gimme a sec
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
are u trying solve it
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
actually, should be 2,-1|dw:1439510546667:dw| yes, gimme one sec
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
hmmm hold the mayo.. for a sec.. I think I got the points... backwards
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
shoot

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')
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
|dw:1439510738835:dw| anyhow, gimme one sec
anonymous
  • anonymous
what the answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
i only have 2 min to turn it in
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
hmmm is this a test..... I assume you've read the CoC
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
if not, you may want to do so
