Example 11 Consider two points P and Q with position vectors (๐‘‚๐‘ƒ) โƒ— = 3๐‘Ž โƒ— โˆ’ 2๐‘ โƒ— and (๐‘‚๐‘„) โƒ— = ๐‘Ž โƒ— + ๐‘ โƒ— . Find the position vector of a point R which divides the line joining P and Q in the ratio 2 : 1, (ii) externally. Position vector of R = (2(๐‘‚๐‘„) โƒ— โˆ’ 1(๐‘‚๐‘ƒ) โƒ—)/(๐Ÿ โˆ’ ๐Ÿ) (๐‘‚๐‘…) โƒ— = (2(๐‘Ž โƒ— + ๐‘ โƒ— ) โˆ’ 1(3๐‘Ž โƒ— โˆ’ 2๐‘ โƒ—))/(2 โˆ’ 1) = (2๐‘Ž โƒ— + 2๐‘ โƒ— โˆ’ 3๐‘Ž โƒ— + 2๐‘ โƒ—)/1 = โˆ’๐‘Ž โƒ— + 4๐‘ โƒ— = 4๐’ƒ โƒ— โˆ’ ๐’‚ โƒ—
