Points P, Q and R in that order are dividing a line segment joining and in four equal parts. Find the coordinates of P, Q and R.

Solution:
Given: Points P, Q and R in order divide a line segment joining the points and in four equal parts.
Using formula:
Step : Find coordinates of P.
divides AB in the ratio of
So,
Step : Find coordinates of Q.
Q divides the segment AB in ratio or . So Q is a mid point of AB
So,
So,
Step : Find coordinates of R.
R divides the segment AB in ratio
So, .
