Expert Answer:

The line is trisected means it is divided into three equal parts and the points of trisection are P(p,-2) and

Q(5/3, q).

We notice that P and Q are the mid points of the line AQ and PB respectively.

So, using mid point formula

p = (3+(5)/3)/2 = 14/6 = 7/3

q = 0

Hence the answer.
