Read the following SAT test question and then click on a button to select your answer. 

A line segment containing the points (0 comma 0) and (12 comma 8) will also contain the point

Answer Choices

Answer

The slope of the line containing the points (0 comma 0) and (12 comma 8) is 8 over 12, or 2 over 3. If (x comma y) is another point on this line segment, then x and y must satisfy y over x = 2 over 3, or y = (2 over 3) times x. Of the five choices, (3 comma 2) is the only point for which y = (2 over 3) times x.
