Example 6 Find the coordinates of the point which divides the line segment joining the points (4, – 3) and (8, 5) in the ratio 3 : 1 internally. Let the given points be A(4, −3) & B(8, 5) Let the point be P(x, y) which divides AB in ratio 3 : 1 Hence x = 7, y = 3 So, the required point is P(x, y) = P(7, 3)
