    Answer:

    M = 1 and M = -7.5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The distance between A and B is 6 – (-1.5) = 7.5

    Point 1: M is between AB. Since AM:MB = 1:2 then AM:AB = 1:(1+2) = 1:3

    that means AM = 7.5 / 3 = 2.5

    So M is at -1.5 + 2.5 = 1

    Point 2: A is between MB. Since AM:MB = 1:2 then AM:AB = 1:(2-1) = 1

    That means AM = AB = 6

    So M is at -1.5 – 6 = -7.5
