Point $C$ is on the segment $AB$ which has endpoints $A(-1, 0)$ and $B(3, 8)$. Point $C$ is three times as far from point $A$ as it is from point $B$. What are the coordinates of point $C$?

We can find the coordinates of C  as follows :

 

[  -1  + (3/4)( 3 - -1)  ,  0  + (3/4)(8 - 0) ]  =

 

[-1 + (3/4)(4)  ,  0 + (3/4)(8) ]   =

 

[ -1 + 3,  0 + 6 ]  =

 

( 2, 6 )  =  C

 

 

cool cool cool
