What is the location of point G, which partitions the directed line segment from F to D into an 8:5 ratio?

a. 1

Point P partitions the directed line segment from A to B into the ratio 3:4. Will P be closer to A to B? WhyC

a. P will be closer to A because it will be 3/7 the distance from A to B.

a. 1:1.

What are the x- and y- coordinates of point P on the directed line segment from A to B such that P is 1/3 the length of the line segment from A to B?

c. (-4, -5)

If point P is 9/11 of the distance from M to N, then point P partitions the directed line segment from M to N into a _______ ratio.

9:2

Genevieve is cutting a 60-inch piece of ribbon into a ratio of 2:3.

She will make the cut _________ inches from the end of the ribbon.

She will make the cut _________ inches from the end of the ribbon.

25.2

Why is partitioning a directed line segment into a ratio of 1:3 not the same as finding 1/3 the length of the directed line segment?

c. The ratio given is part to part. The total number of parts in the whole is 1 + 3 = 4
