Find the ratio in which the line segment joining the points A(6,4) and B(1,-7) is divided by the x axis . Also find the distance 2AB and the coordinates of the point on the x axis which cuts the line segment joining A and B in the required ratio
Let the coordinate of the point at x – axis be (x, 0).
Let the ratio be m : n.
Applying section formula,
Putting (x 1, y 1) = (6,4), (x 2, y 2) = (1,-7) and (x, y) = (x, 0)
