The map shows a straight highway between two towns. Highway planners want to build two new rest stops between the towns so that two rest stops divided the highway into three equal parts. Find the coordinates of the points at which the rest stops should be built.

x   from  -3   to  +3       1/3    would be -2      2/3 would be  +1

y   from  -2  to  +3         1/3 would be   -2 + 5/3 = -1/3      and   2/3 would be  -2 + 10/3 = 1 1/3

 

 (-2, -1/3)   and   (1,  1 1/3)
