Hello, IDontunderstand!

Given and , find the coordinates of point

that seperates into two parts with ratio 2:1.

If P is of the way from to , then:

. . the -coordinate is of the way from 2 and 5 (the two -coordinates)

. . the -coordinate is of the way from 12 and 0 (the two -coordindates).

. . . .

Therefore: .
