Point A is at (3, -6) and point C is at (-5, 11).Find the coordinates of point B on AC such that the ratio of AB to BC is 2:1.

We need to find the distance from A to C   that is   2 /(2+1) = 2/3 of the way to C

x:   from  3   to -5   is   -8          2/3 * (-8)   added to 3 = ........

y :  from  -6  to 11  is +17         2/3 * (17)   added to -6 = .........
