Determine the coordinates of the point $P$ which divides the line segment $A B$ where $A$ is the point $\left(x_{1}, y_{1}\right)$ and $B$ is the point $\left(x_{2}, y_{2}\right)$ so that $A P / P B=m / n$ Verify that in the case $m=n,$ you obtain midpoint formula.

$$x_{m}=\frac{n x_{1}+m x_{2}}{m+n}, y_{m}=\frac{n y_{1}+m y_{2}}{m+n}$$

In mathematics, a derivative is a measure of how a function changes as its input changes. Loosely speaking, a derivative can be thought of as how much one quantity is changing in response to changes in some other quantity; for example, the derivative of the position of a moving object with respect to time is the object's velocity. The concept of a derivative developed as a way to measure the steepness of a curve; the concept was ultimately generalized and now "derivative" is often used to refer to the relationship between two variables, independent and dependent, and to various related notions, such as the differential.

In mathematics, the derivative of a function of a real variable measures the sensitivity to change of the function value (the rate of change of the value of the function). If the derivative of a function at a chosen input value equals a constant value, the function is said to be a constant function. In this case the derivative itself is the constant of the function, and is called the constant of integration.

according to given question, we have to find them a point off point people because in comma be discreet and, you know, desk Uncle Mobile and Point Beetle it is zero comma. We can denote an extra comma. Wait, no. We can denote with point this explore more like And this is a little excellent. Less extra. You like it? They will come up. Why wouldn't place way too? Do it so we can see that X is equal to P plans. You don't divided by two That is equal invited Victor And why usable toe be plans You pay to be a very big toe. So that means we can see that we point x come away is important And he measured by through comma be like
