You connect the points (0, 0) and (9, 6) with a line segment. Starting at (0, 0), you move 1/4 of the way along the segment. What is the sum of the coordinates of the point you land upon?

What is the sum of the coordinates of the point you land upon?

Hello Guest!

\(y=\frac{6}{9}x\\ x= \frac{9}{4}=2.25\\ y=\frac{6}{9}\cdot \frac{9}{4}=1.5\\ \color{blue}y+x=1.5+2.25=3.75\)
