I'm building a freestanding deck extension...where should the post go?

Just wondering where I should put the posts for the new deck in relation to the old deck. This new deck will be free standing but attach to the old deck, which has a ledger. So the front has posts and I have no idea where the new footers should be in relation to that. Thanks!

Post a picture of what you have now.
Do not to be attaching a new deck to a poorly built one.
May be about to just sister another joist to the one on the end.

How can it be free standing if it's attached to the old deck? That doesn't make any sense.
