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?

Hello Guest!

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