## Answers ( )

AnswerThe ratio is

1:2and the point of division is

(7/3 , 0)Let the point of dividend by X-axis of the line joining the points be (x , 0) and the ratio be m:n

Also let the points be A(2 , -4) and B(3 , 8)

And

Putting the value of m and n in (1) we have :

Therefore , the point of division is

7/3
