Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1u have a formula to find this :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first off that means we are going to break it in to 6 equal parts, and take 5 of them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the cordinates of point P(x,y) which lies on segment AB with end points A(a,b) and B(c,d) and divides it in the ration m:n so u have  x=(mc+na)/(m+n) and y=(md+nb)/(m+n)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah i don't get that formula from 3 to 12 is 9 units one sixth of that is \(\frac{9}{3}=\frac{3}{2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so is 3/2 the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1add \(5\times \frac{3}{2}\) to \(3\) and get \(10.5\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no the answer is not a number, it is a point

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first coordinate of that point, if i am not mistaken, is \(10.5\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No the answer is (21/2, 3) :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we need the second coordinate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how did we get that again?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1which, according to @imqwerty is 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@misty1212 u can go here to see the proof of formula  http://kea.kar.nic.in/vikasana/bridge/maths/chap_13.pdf :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@imqwerty used a formula i don't know

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you want to do it without the formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok lets go slow then

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first off, is it clear that if you want to break it in to a ratio that is 5:1 that is the same as dividing it up in to six parts, and taking five of them?

misty1212
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so we are going to first break it in to six parts, then count out five we have to do it twice, once for each coordinate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first coordinate of one point is 3, of the other is 12 it is clear that they are 9 units apart?

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then we break that in to 6 pieces, so each will have length \(\frac{9}{6}\) or \(\frac{3}{2}\)

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok now we want five of those, so staring at 3 we will add \(5\times \frac{3}{2}\) or if you prefer \(5\times 1.5\)

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i get \[3+5\times 1.5=10.5\] as the first coordinate

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we can repeat with the second coordinates

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1which is easier since they will be whole numbers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from 1 to 5 is 6 units right?

misty1212
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1break that up in to 6 pieces each has length 1 since \(\frac{6}{6}=1\)

misty1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1again we want to add five of those to \(1\) so \(1+5=4\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm not the same answer as @imqwerty got, but i am going to stick with that one
