Consider the line segment joining points \(A=(-6,-7)\) and \(B=(8,-1)\). If \(P\) is the intersection point of this line segment and the \(y\text{-axis},\) and \(P\) internally divides the line segment in the ratio \(m:n,\) where \(m\) and \(n\) are coprime positive integers, what is the value of \(mn?\)
