Determine the ratio in which the line 2x + y − 4 = 0 divides the line segment joining the points A(2, − 2) and B(3, 7)

Let the given line divide the line segment joining the points A(2, −2) and B(3, 7) in a ratio k : 1.

Coordinates of the point of division

This point also lies on 2x + y − 4 = 0

Therefore, the ratio in which the line 2x + y − 4 = 0 divides the line segment joining the points A(2, −2) and B(3, 7) is 2:9.
