what is internal and external division

Asked by  | 13th Mar, 2009, 01:27: AM

Expert Answer:

 

(a) Internal division of a line segment

Consider the point P(xP , yP) that lies on the line segment AB joining points A(xA , yB) and B(xA , yB). That means AP/PB=k1/k2

(b) External division of a line segment:

When point P lies outside of the line segment AB, it can divide AB externally as shown in this diagram. Here AP/BP=k1 /k2
