Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Find the midpoint between (–1, 2) and (3, –6). Apply the Midpoint Formula: midpoint is (1, 2) So the answer is P = (1, –2). Technically, the Midpoint Formula is the following: [(x_1 + x_2)/2 , (y_1 + y_2)/2] But as long as you remember that you're averaging the two points' x and yvalues, you'll do fine. It won't matter which point you pick to be the "first" point you plug in. Find the midpoint between (6.4, 3) and (–10.7, 4). Apply the Midpoint Formula: P = (2.15, 3.5) So the answer is P = (–2.15, 3.5) Find the value of p so that (–2, 2.5) is the midpoint between (p, 2) and (–1, 3). I'll apply the Midpoint Formula: Copyright © Elizabeth Stapel 20002011 All Rights Reserved ( [p  1]/2 , 2.5 ) = ( 2, 2.5 ] This reduces to needing to figure out what p is, in order to make the xvalues work: p = 3 So the answer is p = –3.
