to go from P to Q, you start at (-4, -1) and move up 10 units and move right 12 units. get these numbers by doing:
x coordinate of q - x coordinate of p = 6 - -4 = 10
y coordinate of q - y coordinate of p = 11 - -1 = 12

P to R is 4x shorter than P to Q, so divide 10 and 12 by 4 and this gives you the number of units you move from P to get to R

move in the x (right) direction = 2.5
move in the y (up) direction = 3

so if P = (-4, -1), R = (-1.5, 2)

im so tired im not actually sure this is the right working, but im pretty certain. hope it is right lol
