find the ratio in which the point [-3,k] divides the line segment joining the points [-5,-4] and [-2,3].Hence find the value of k.

Suppose the point P (– 3, k) divides the line segment joining points A (–5, – 4) and B (–2, 3) in the ratio x : 1 

then coordinats of P are But the coordinates of P are (–3, k).

 

 

Hence the ratio is 2 : 1 and
