Let the x- axis cut the join of A(2, -3) and B(5, 6) in the ratio k : 1 at the point P

Then, by the section formula, the coordinates of P are

But P lies on the x axis so, its ordinate must be 0

So the required ratio is 1 : 2

Thus the x - axis divides AB in the ratio 1 : 2

Putting we get the point P as

Thus, P is (3, 0) and k = 1 : 2

Solution 18

Let the y - axis cut the join A(-2, -3) and B(3, 7) at the point P in the ratio k : 1

But P lies on the y-axis so, its abscissa is 0

So the required ratio is which is 2 : 3

Putting we get the point P as

i.e., P(0, 1)

Hence the point of intersection of AB and the y - axis is P(0, 1) and P divides AB in the ratio 2 : 3

Solution 19

Let the line segment joining A(3, -1) and B(8, 9) is divided byx - y - 2 = 0 in ratio k : 1 at p
