Courtney Smith I would appreciate assistance with the following problem In triangle ABC,segment MN divides sides(segment)AC and (segment)AB proportionally. If the coordinates are A(3,7),M(0,10) and N(8,22) and if AM:MC = 3:1, find the coordinates of B and C. Thank you very muchHi Courtney,
Now consider CB. C is (1,11) and N is (8,22). N is 9 units to the right of C and NB is 3 times CN, thus B is 3x9 = 27 units to the right of N. Thus the Xcoordinate of B is 8 + 27 = 35. Finally N is 11 units above C and thus B is 3x11 = 33 units above N. Thus the Ycoordinate of B is 22 + 33 = 44. Cheers,Penny
