Line segment

For the line segment whose endpoints are L[-1, 13] and M[18, 2], find the x and y value for the point located 4 over 7 the distance from L to M.

Correct result:

x =  9.86
y =  6.71

Solution:

x=1+4/7(18+1)=9.86
y=13+4/7(213)=6.71 A[9.86,6.71]



We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you!
