I understand what you want but have to point out that a coordinate of (-1,2) is to the left of (8,2).

Hi;

Do you mean twice as close to R(8,2) as S(-1,2)?

That drawing looks backwards. Shouldn't S be to the left of R?

It means it's closer to R then it is to S. (twice closer)

There was no drawing in the problem, I just did it myself and added the letter in alphabetical order. If there is something you don't understand in my text, tell me and I'll try to reformulate it. (

Hi, need help with this problem, I have no idea how to even start it.

a)Determining the coordinates of the point N, situated twice near the end R (8.2) as the end S (-1.2) of RS.
