Question 17:

Find the coordinates of the points which divides the line segment joining and into four equal parts.

Answer:

and

Let and are the points which divide line segment AB into equal parts.

Let coordinates of point and

We know .

It means, point P divides line segment AB in .

Using Section formula to find coordinates of point P, we get

Since .

It means, point Q is the mid-point of AB.

Using Section formula to find coordinates of point Q, we get

Because .

It means, point R divides line segment AB in

Using Section formula to find coordinates of point P, we get

Therefore,
