what is the meaning of externally dividing a line segment?
pl answer asap
Let A and B be two points in the given plane. If P is a point on AB produced such that AP: BP = m : n, then point P divides AB externally.
In the given figure, the point P lies outsides the line segment AB. Therefore, the point P dividing the line segment, AB externally in the ratio m : n.
Coordinates of the point P dividing the line segment, AB externally in the ratio m : n is given by
