Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hi there. Your last question you learned the procedure for computing the midpoint. Can you apply that to these points?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is no correct answer in the solutions you give though... isn't point V(2,3) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your previous question was asking the procedure; you got the answer, A. What did that say?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it said Calculate the average of the xcoordinates and the average of the ycoordinates of the endpoints.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. So, let's first calculate the average of the X coordinates. First, what are the two x coordinates?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK. great. Let's get back to solving the problem. As you said, the goal is to first average the x coordinates of the endpoints. So, what are the x coordinates of the endpoints?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0V(2, 6) and W(x+2, y+3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Those are the complete endpoints. What are the X coordinates?

ktklown

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember that for a point, it's (x, y) ... the first coordinate is X, and the second is Y.

Godsgirl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So x would be 2 and y would be y

ktklown

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We want the two x coordinates. The x coordinate of the first point is 2, like you said. What's the x coordinate of the second point?

ktklown

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's the Y coordinate of the first point.
