Point R divides a line segment with endpoints P(4, 5) and Q(10, 14) in the ratio such that PR:RQ = 1:2. What are the coordinates of point R?

We need point P that is 1 /(1+2) = 1/3 of the way from P to Q

for x from 4 to 10 1/3 of the way would be 6

for y from 5 to 14 1/3 of the way would be 8 (6,8)
