**1.1 Line Segments, Distance and Midpoint**

1.1d – Partitioning a Segment CC Standard G-GPE.6 Find the point on a directed line segment between two given points that partitions the segment in a given ratio. At the end of this lesson, you should be able to answer the following question: How do you find the point on a directed line segment that partitions the segment in a given ratio?

2
**Point P divides in the ratio 3 to 1.**

What does this mean?

3
= -1 = -7 Slope = m = = 1 -1 7 -7

4
m = -4 5

5
**Slope Formula y2 – y1 x2 – x1 The slope of a line through the points**

(x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is as follows: y2 – y1 x2 – x1 m =

6
Ex. Find the slope of the line that passes through (–2, –3) and (4, 6). Let (x1, y1) be (–2, –3) and (x2, y2) be (4, 6). = y2 – y1 x2 – x1 6 – (–3) 4 – (–2) Substitute 6 for y2, –3 for y1, 4 for x2, and –2 for x1. 9 6 = 3 2 = The slope of the line that passes through (–2, –3) and (4, 6) is . 3 2 *** Always reduce your fractions****

Example 1: Find the coordinate of point P that lies along the directed line segment from A(3, 4) to B(6, 10) and partitions the segment in the ratio of 3 to 2. Directed Line Segment: Tells the direction in which from which point to start and end. In this case, from Point A to Point B So point A must be labeled A and B What does that tell you about the distance AP and PB in relation to AB?

**Partitioning a segment**

Label your points and Note: since it is a directed segment, order does matter. 2. Convert the ratio into a percent (keep as a fraction) a:b Percent ratio (%) 3. Find the rise and run for the segment (order does matter) Rise: Run: 4. To find the partitioning point: x – coordinate: x1 -coordinate + run(% in fraction form) y - coordinate: y1 -coordinate + rise(% in fraction form)

9
Find the coordinate of point P that lies along the directed line segment from A(3, 4) to B(6, 10) and partitions the segment in the ratio of 3 to 2. 1. Label your points. (note: Since it is a directed segment, order does matter, so A(x1, y1) and B(x2, y2) ). 2. Convert the ratio into a percent 3. Find the rise and run for AB 4. The slope of AP must be the same as AB. So, to find the coordinates of P, add 60% of the run to the x-coordinate of A and add 60% of the rise to the y-coordinate of A How can you use the distance formula to check that P partitions in the ratio of 3 to 2?

10
Example 2: Find the coordinates of the point P that lies along the directed segment from A(1, 1) to B(7, 3) and partitions the segment in the ratio of 1 to 4

11
Example 3: Find the coordinates of point P that lies along the directed line segment from M to N and partitions the segment in the ratio of 3 to 2

12
Essential question: How do you find the point on a directed line segment that partitions the segment in a given ratio?
