Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. I have two points (0,6) (18,6)

How do I work out (2/3) the way coordinate on the line from (18,6) to (0,6)

Thanks

It's the point that has x-coord and y-coord 2/3 of the way from (18,6) to (0,6).
3. Well since it is a horizontal line, the distance along it is just the distance between x coordinates

from P to mid point of OA = 0,6
