Figure out the coordinates of a point between two other points that give a certain ratio. For example, find a point C so that it is two thirds of the way between point A and B.

Problem

A, B, and C are collinear, and B is between A and C. The ratio of A, B to A, C is 1, colon, 2.
If A is at left parenthesis, 6, comma, 3, right parenthesis and B is at left parenthesis, minus, 1, comma, 2, right parenthesis, what are the coordinates of point C?
C, equals, left parenthesis
