Point R divides a line segment with endpoints P(4, 5) and Q(10, 14) in the ratio such that PR:RQ = 1:2. What are the coordinates of point R?

We need point P that is 1 /(1+2) = 1/3 of the way from P to Q

 

  for x    from 4 to 10        1/3 of the way would be   6

  for y    from  5 to 14        1/3 of the way would be  8                    (6,8)
