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

  • math -

    (-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).
