We need to prove the points (3,-2),(5,2) and(8,8) are collinear.
A=(3,-2) B=(5,2) C=(8,8)
Let The points B divides AC in the ratio of k:1
Then the coordinates will be,
Coordinates of B are (5,2)
Comparing we get,
Value of k is same in both.
Therefore Points A,B,C are collinears.

- In what ratio is the line joining P(5,3) and Q(-5,3) divided by y-axis?Also find the coordinates of the point of intersection.
- Find the ratio in which the line joining (-2, 5) and (-5, -6) is divided by the line y = -3. Hence find the point of intersection.
- In a triangle ABC, AB = 6, BC = 8 and AC = 10. A perpendicular from B meets the side AC at D. A circle is drawn with radius BD and centre B. If the circle cuts AB and BC respectively at P and Q, then AP : QC is equal to
