From the graph, the line \(AB\) is divided at \(P\) in the ratio \(m : n\).

Therefore, \(\frac{AP}{AB} = \frac{m}{n}\).

So, \(A'P' : P'B'\) is also \(m : n\).

\(\frac{A'P'}{A'B'} = \frac{m}{n}\)

\(n(A'P') =\) \(m(A'B')\)

\(n(x - x_1) =\) \(m(x_2 - x)\)

\(nx - nx_1 = mx_2 - mx\)

\(mx + nx = mx_2 + nx_1\)

\(x\) \(=\) \(\frac{mx_2 + nx_1}{m + n}\)

Similarly, \(y\) \(=\) \(\frac{my_2 + ny_1}{m + n}\).
