Name: __________________________________________________________________ Date: _____________________ Partitioning Line Segments in 2 Dimensions MCC9-12.G.GPE.6 Find the point on a directed line segment between two given points that partitions the segment in a given ratio. 1. Given the points A(–1, 2) and B(7, 14), find the coordinates of the point P on directed line segment AB that partitions AB in the ratio 1:3. 2. Given the points A(-2, 4) and B(7, -2), find the coordinates of the point P on directed line segment AB that partitions AB in the ratio 1:2. 3. Given the points A(-3, -4) and B(5, 0), find the coordinates of the point P on directed line segment AB that partitions AB in the ratio 2:3. 4. The map shows a straight highway between two towns. Highway planners want to build two new rest stops between the towns so that the two rest stops divided the highway into three equal parts. Find the coordinates of the points at which the rest stops should be built.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
