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

Given the two points P(-4,-5,0) and Q(5,5,-3) find the point R that is 1/4 of the way from Q to P.

2. Relevant equations

PQ = Point Q- Point P

3. The attempt at a solution

I got my direction vector as

PQ= [9,10,-3]

but i dont know how to find R

All i know is that the answer is supopsed to be:

R(2.75,2.5,-2.25)

Im wanted to add 1/4 of my direction vector PQ to my point q but this doesnt give me the right answer
