given R(6,19) and S (14,6), what are the coordinates of the oints on the segment RS twofifths of the distance from R to S

(6 , 19), P(X , Y), (14 , 6).
X  (6)) = 2/5(14  (6)),
X + 6 = 2/5(14 + 6),
X + 6 = 2/5(20),
X + 6 = 8,
X = 8  6 = 2.
Y  19 = 2/5(6  19),
Y  19 = 2/5(25),
Y  19 = 10,
Y = 19  10 = 9.
P(2 , 9).
