# In What Ratio Does Y-axis Divide the Line Segment Joining the Points (-4, 7) and (3, -7)? - Mathematics

In what ratio does y-axis divide the line segment joining the points (-4, 7) and (3, -7)?

#### Solution

Let y-axis divides the e segment pining the points ( -4,7) and (3,- 7)  in the ratio  K : 1 Then

0= (3k-4)/(k+1)

⇒ 3k = 4

⇒ k = 4/3

Hence, the required ratio is 4:3
