Let P and Q be points with corresponding vectors p and q.

a) show that the vector 1/2p+1/2q is the midpoint of the line segment joining P and Q

b)Find a point that is one third of the distance from P to Q

2. Relevant equations

No idea

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not really sure.. but if you were to consider P to be one unit vector and Q to be one unit vector then PQ would be 2 unit vectors??
