The answer to P and Q for anyone who might be able to help if given the oppurtunuity to work backwards is...
I wonder if anyone can help me with the question below.
A line is drawn through the point A(1,2) to cut the line 2y = 3x - 5 in P and the line x + y = 12 in Q.
If AQ = 2AP, find the coordinates P and Q.
Try as I might, and I even have the answer to the value of P and Q, but I cant understand how anyone would be able to find out four unknowns (ie the cordinates of P and Q) with just those three equations.
Thanks in advance!
Apologies, I understand however, I don't understand how knowing the slope (your final equation) will help me solve the problem. Can you elaborate please?
