Suppose that I have two points A(1,2) and B(4,9). Now, I have to plot a point C such that it divides the seg AB in the ratio in the ratio 2:3. What input command should I use? I searched in the tutorials on YouTube but it did't address my concern.

Create point

C=A + 2/3 * (B-A)

Or use Dilate() / Enlarge() command: https://wiki.geogebra.org/e...

C=Point(Segment(A,B),2/3)
