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.
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 ().
