Points on line segment

Points P & Q belong to segment AB. If AB=a, AP = 2PQ = 2QB, find the distance: between point A and the midpoint of the segment QB.

For Basic calculations in analytic geometry is helpful line slope calculator. From coordinates of two points in the plane it calculate slope, normal and parametric line equation(s), slope, directional angle, direction vector, the length of segment, intersections the coordinate axes etc. Need help calculate sum, simplify or multiply fractions? Try our fraction calculator. Do you want to convert length units?
