The distance from x=-10 to x=2 is 2 - (-10) = 12 units. We can divide this in the ratio of 5:3 by dividing 12 by 8 then multiplying by 5 and 3. This gives 12/8 x 5 = 7.5 and 12/8 x 3 = 4.5. The ratio of these two results 7.5/4.5 = 1.66... which is the same as 5/3. So, if 4.5 is the distance from x = -10, the coordinates of this point is (-5.5, -3).

Then, there are two possible coordinates, depending upon whether the longer or shorter distance was subtracted from -10.12d
