Question 1.
A (15, 5), B (9, 20) and A-P-B. Find the ratio in which point P (11, 15) divides segment AB. Find the ratio using x and y co-ordinates. Write the conclusion. (Textbook pg. no. 113)
Solution:
Suppose point P (11,15) divides segment AB in the ratio m : n.
By section formula,

∴ Point P divides seg AB in the ratio 2 : 1.
The ratio obtained by using x and y co-ordinates is the same.

Question 2.
External division: (Textbook pg. no. 115)
Suppose point R divides seg PQ externally in the ratio 3:1.

Let the common multiple be k.
Let PR = 3k and QR = k
Now, PR = PQ + QR … [P – Q – R]
∴ 3k = PQ + k
∴ PQQR = 2kk = 21
∴ Point Q divides seg PR in the ratio 2 : 1 internally.
Thus, we can find the co-ordinates of point R, when co-ordinates of points P and Q are given.
