Answer:Hope it helps youuu…

Step-by-step explanation:Your answer is (5,-3)

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Answer:

(5,-3)

Step-by-step explanation:

Let the point of trisection be C

This point divides the line in the ratio 1: 2

AC:CB = 1:2

Refer the attached figure

So, we will use section formula:

m:n=1:2

Substitute the values in the section formula:

So, the coordinate of the point of trisection of the line segment joining the points A(7,-2)and B(1,-5) is (5,-3)
