(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let A, B be points in R3 with position vectors

a:(7,-2,3)

b:(1,-5,0)

Let Q be the point on AB such that AQ= 2/3 AB

Find q, the position vector of Q

2. Relevant equations

The back of the book says the answer is: (2,-3,-1)

3. The attempt at a solution

First, I found the vector of AB: (-6,-3,-3)

So Q should be: a+(2/3)(AB)

ie: (7,-2,3)+(-4,-2,-2)

=(3,-4,1)

Which is different to the answer given by the book.

Did i do anything wrong?

Thanks
