could you find one endpoint of a segment given the other endpoint and the midpoint? if so,demonstrate by finding the endpoint of the segment with one endpoint(-4,7) and (2,5) as the midpoint.

    I'd translate the midpoint to the origin and translate the other endpoint the same amount (2,5)->(0,0) (-4,7)->(-6,2) At the origin there is that reflection thing so the other end point would be at (6,-2) then i translate it back to the original location (6,-2)->(8,3)

    I was thinking about doing something with the other endpoint having to be on the line defined by these two points but meh idk if that would even work
