Annie is creating a stencil for her artwork using a coordinate plane. The beginning of the left edge of the stencil falls at (−1, 2). She wants to align an important detail on the left edge of her stencil at (2, 1). She knows this is 1:2 of the way to where she wants the end of the stencil. Where is the end of the stencil located? (0, 5) (8, −1) (0.5, 1.5) (1, 1.7)

@AZ hehe

use desmos

So this is the concept

We have from (-1, 2) to (2, 1) and we're trying to figure out the end and the ratio from (-1, 2) to (2,1) is 1:2 to the other end

well I guess the easiest way to find the point would be to just follow the pattern and do it twice more

agreed

So to reach the other end, we have to have twice the length of that first segment since it's in a ratio of 1:2

Does that make sense?

so B?

Correct!
