## neverforgetvivistee 4 years ago finding missing endpoints: is there a way to do it algebraically? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d51p_8xQQZ0 so you can draw a number line to see how far each number is from each other, but is there a faster way to do it?

1. satellite73

ignore this video. you can find the endpoint using algebra or just thinking. you have an actual problem to solve?

2. neverforgetvivistee

Endpoint: (−9, −1), midpoint: (8, 14)

3. satellite73

you want algebra or think method?

4. neverforgetvivistee

algebra

5. neverforgetvivistee

or whatever you were typing

6. satellite73

we can do both for first coordinate solve $\frac{x-9}{2}=8$ and for second solve $\frac{y-1}{2}=14$

7. satellite73

because midpoint you use $\frac{x_1+x_2}{2}$ for the first coordinate and $\frac{y_1+y_2}{2}$ for the second. so if you know the answer you can find the first or second coordinate

oh i see i got it right, you subtracted because they're negative?

9. neverforgetvivistee

thank you :'} you're very good at math don't ever stop what you're doing

10. satellite73

yes i "subtracted" because both were negative. if they had been positive i would have added.

thank you for the compliment
