Point E is located at (−2, 4) and point F is located at (5, 10) . What are the coordinates of the point that partitions the directed line segment EF¯¯¯¯¯ in a 7:3 ratio?

x coordinate  =  [ 5 - - 2] (7/10) + -2   =   [7](7/10) + -2  =  49/10 - 2  = 29/10

 

y coordinate   =  [ 10 - 4 ] (7/10) + 4  = [ 6](7/10) + 4  = 42/10 + 4  =  82/10

 

 

So.....the point is   (29/10, 82,/10)   =  (2.9, 8.2)
