## anonymous 5 years ago What is the midpoint and distance formulas

1. anonymous

distance= d= sqrt (x2-x1)2 + (y2-y1)2

we have two points $(x _{1},y _{1}), (x _{2},y _{2})$ the midpoint is the average of the x and y positions: $((x_{1}+x_{2})/2,(y_{1}+y_{2})/2)$ the distance is: $d=\sqrt{(x_{2}-x_{1})^{2}+(y_{2}-y_{1})^{2}}$ from the pythagorean theorem
