**Section Formula CBSE NCERT Solutions Chapter 7 Exercise 7.2 Question 8**

**8. **If A and B are **(-2, -2) and (2, -4)** respectively, find the coordinates of **P** such that

AP = AB and P lies on the line segment **AB**.

**Solution:**

**A = (-2, -2) and B=(2, -4)**

It is given that

So, we have = **3:4**

Let coordinates of **P be (x, y)**

Using **Section formula** to find coordinates of P, we get

**Therefore, Coordinates of point P are ().**
