richardlong369 2 years ago Find Slope, Distance and Midpoint Question

1. richardlong369

Here is the problem

2. beeqay

Slope = Change in y/change in x $(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)$ Distance = $\sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}$ Midpoint = $(y_2+y_1)/2$ $(x_2+x_1)/2$

3. richardlong369

So what do they equal??

4. beeqay

5. richardlong369

didint work i keep getting like 5.567546

6. Calcmathlete

For which one? Distance, slope, or midpoint?

7. beeqay

What's giving you that value? midpoint, distance or slope?

8. richardlong369

midpoint

9. richardlong369

can u just tell me what they are Please ( I WILL GIVE YOU A MEDAL!! :)

10. beeqay

@richardlong369 I want to help not to get medals. But anyway, if you use that formula your midpoint should be $(1/2,5/4)$

11. richardlong369

And the REST ??

12. beeqay

Because it is just simply plugging in x and y values and adding them together. Now just get the rest.
