5. Find the ratio in which the Y-axis divides the line segment joining the points (5,-6) and (-1,-4).(3 Points)O 2:101:5O 3:15:1 About the author Margaret

If the line is divided by Y-axis the value of x = 0 [tex]x = \frac{mx2 + nx1}{m + n} \\ \\ 0 = \frac{m \times – 1 + n \times 5}{m + n} \\ \\ 0(m + n) = – 1m + 5n \\ 1m = 5n \\ \frac{m}{n} = \frac{5}{1} \\ \\ [/tex] m:n = 5:1 Reply

## If the line is divided by Y-axis the value of x = 0

[tex]x = \frac{mx2 + nx1}{m + n} \\ \\ 0 = \frac{m \times – 1 + n \times 5}{m + n} \\ \\ 0(m + n) = – 1m + 5n \\ 1m = 5n \\ \frac{m}{n} = \frac{5}{1} \\ \\ [/tex]

m:n = 5:1
