If y is the distance between L and K, then

K-L is a vector describing the direction of the line, going from L to K.

Divide it by y to make it exactly one unit long.

Now follow that direction for exactly x units, starting at K, and you will get to M.

M=K+((K-L)/y)*x

I suggest you get a good book on vectors....
