 In the triangle OPQ below, OP = p and OQ = q. R is a point on PQ such that PR: RQ = 1 : 3 and 5OS = 2 OQ. PS intersects OR at T.
 Express in term of p and q
 OS (1mark)
→
OS = ^{2}/_{5} OQ = ^{2}/_{5}q  PQ (1mark)
PQ = q − p  OR (2mark)
OR = ¼q + ¾p

 Given that OT= hOR and PT = kPS. Determine the values of h and k. (6marks)
 → →
OT = h OR
= h(¼q + ¾p)
= ^{h}/_{4}q + ^{3h}/_{4}p  → → →
OT = OP + PT
= p + k (−p + ^{2}/_{5}q)
= p − kp + ^{2k}/_{5}q
= p(1−k) + ^{2k}/_{5}q
^{h}/_{4}q + ^{3h}/_{4}p = p(1−k) + ^{2k}/_{5}q
^{3h}/_{4} = 1 − k
^{h}/_{4} = ^{2k}/_{5}
h = ^{8}/_{5}k
¾(^{8}/_{5}k) = 1− k
^{6}/_{5}k + ^{5}/_{5}k = 1
^{11}/_{5}k = 1
k = ^{5}/_{11}
h = ^{8}/_{5}(^{5}/_{11})
h = ^{8}/_{11}
 → →
 Express in term of p and q
