## Answers ( )

Step-by-step explanation:Let P and Q be the points of trisection of line joining the points A(4,1) & B(-2,-3).

Then, AP = PQ = QB

Now, P divides AB in the ratio 1:2 and Q divides AB in the ratio 2:1.

Therefore,

Coordinates of P = (

)=(−1,0)

Coordinates of Q = (

)=(−4,2)

Hence, the two points of trisection are P(−1,0) and (−4,2).
