A Straight Line is formed using two points A(3,3) and B(6,6). Another point P(x,y) lies between A and B such that AP/BP=10. The coordinates of P are? A. (5,5) B. (61/11, 61/11) C. (63/11, 63/11) D. (36/11, 36/11) E. (58/11, 58/11) The OA is C. I don't have clear this PS question, I appreciate if any expert explain it for me. Is there a strategic approach to this question? Thank you so much.

I don't have clear this PS question, I appreciate if any expert explain it for me. Is there a strategic approach to this question? Thank you so much. I don't think there is any strategic approach. we have to use the formula This is a simple coordinate geometry formula for a pont (x,y) dividing a line joining points (a1,b1) and (a2,b2 ) in the ratio m:n and the coordinates are X=(ma2+na1)/(m+n) Y=(mb2+nb1)/(m+n) Here a1=3 b1=3 a2=6 b2=6 and m=10, n=1 Applying these values we get X=(10x6+1x3)/(10+1)=63/11 Y=(10x6+1x3)/(10+1)=63/11 Hence option C is correct • 5 Day FREE Trial Study Smarter, Not Harder Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • 5-Day Free Trial 5-day free, full-access trial TTP Quant Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • FREE GMAT Exam Know how you'd score today for$0
