E

Area of the square = 8*8
=64

To divide the ratio into 7:1 we have to find a point on the vertical side of the square opposite to (3,10) such that the area of the triangle is 8.

Area of triangle is 1/2*b*8=8

Hence solving for b we get b=2. This point is (11,8). Hence E

First instinct is that there will be 2 such points - one lying on x = 11 and the other lying on y = 2.

Looking at the options, we see that we are looking for the point on x = 11. It will be much closer to (11, 10) than to (11, 2) so of the given options, (11, 8) makes the most sense. Let's check.

Area of square = 8*8 = 64

Area of right triangle made by (3, 10), (11, 8) and (11, 10) = (1/2)*2*8 = 8

This is 1/8th of the total area of the square and hence it satisfies our condition.

Answer (E)
