Text

Suppose the line 2x+y-4=0 divides the line segment joining A(2,-2) and B(3,7) in the ratio K:1 at point C.

Then , the coordinates  of C are left ( frac{3k+2}{k+1},frac{7k-2}{k+1} right )

Angle required.

But C lies on 2x+y-4=0, therefore ,

2left ( frac{3k+2}{k+1} right )+left ( frac{7k-2}{k+1} right )-4=0

Rightarrow 6k+4+7k-2-4k-4=0

Rightarrow 9k-2=0

Rightarrow 9k=2Rightarrow frac{2}{9}
