Use vectors to find the position vector of point P if P divides AB in the ratio 3:2 given A (-1,6,4) and B (4,1,-1)

3. The attempt at a solution

Well I assume it's sort of like finding the midpoint, except I would do something like (-1+4)/1.5 etc.

Am I correct? Do I just divide the sum of the numbers by 3/2 hence the ratio? or am I going about this the wrong way?
