A segment with endpoints at A(2,-2) and B(14,4) is extended through B to point C. If BC = 1/3*AC, what are the coordinates for point C? Express your answer as an ordered pair

Here is how to find the 'x' coordinate...... you see if you can do the same for the 'y'

 

From A to B      x goes from   2 to 14      a distance of 12....   we need to go  1/3  more for BC = 1/3 AC

                                              so x   will go 4 more  ( which is 1/3 of 12)   from B   to   x = 18
