Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a) find the midpoint of AB using the formula the median is the line that connects the vertex to the midpoint so C is the vertex and then u find the slope of the two points (midpoint of AB, and C) ^use the formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Start by finding the mid point of AB, the end points are B (5,2) and A (3,4). The mid point would be (1,3) Do you understand how that is calculated.
