Hi there. Your last question you learned the procedure for computing the midpoint. Can you apply that to these points?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you remember what the procedure was?

there is no correct answer in the solutions you give though... isn't point V(-2,-3) ?

ktklown i do not

Your previous question was asking the procedure; you got the answer, A. What did that say?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it said Calculate the average of the x-coordinates and the average of the y-coordinates of the endpoints.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right. So, let's first calculate the average of the X coordinates. First, what are the two x coordinates?

Also, are you sure you copied the numbers in the problem correctly? As henkjan noted, the answer to the problem you posted is not one of the multiple choice selections.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I did copy the numbers correctly
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hmm.. OK, are you sure you copied answers C and D correctly? They're the same.
anonymous
  • anonymous
no i didn't sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
here is answer d (x/2, (y-3)/2)
anonymous
  • anonymous
OK. 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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
V(-2, -6) and W(x+2, y+3)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Those are the complete endpoints. What are the X coordinates?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Remember that for a point, it's (x, y) ... the first coordinate is X, and the second is Y.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So x would be -2 and y would be -y
anonymous
  • anonymous
We 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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
-6
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's the Y coordinate of the first point.
anonymous
  • anonymous
We want the X coordinate of the second point.
