In what ratio the line segment joining the points (-2,-3) and (3,7) is divided by the y – axis ? Also, find the co – ordinates of the point of division

Let y-axis intersect the line segment joining the points A (-2,-3) and B(3,7) in the ratio at a point P(0,y).

So apply section formula in order to get,

Equate the x component to get,

Using the value of lamda we can get the co-ordinate of P as-
