Use the midpoint formula, but work back wards. (3.5, 2) = (x_1 + x_2/2, y_1 + y_2/2) (7, 4) = (1 + x_2, 8 + y_2) (6, 4) = (x_2, y_2) Therefore, (6, 4)

(x the x co ordinate of c)^2 + (y the y co ordinate of C) ^2 = the radius squared

Point C is the midpoint and therefore you can work backwards using the midpoint formula.

3.5 = (1 + x)/2 7 = 1 + x x = 6 The x coordinate of R is 6. Then work with y. 2 = (8 + y)/2 4 = 8 + y y = 4 Therefore, the ycoordinate of R is 4. R(6, 4)

Just focus on one of the values. FOr instance, what I did up there is start with x and then y.

Do you get it?\[M(x, y) = ((x_{1} + x_{2})/2, (y_{1} + y_{2})/2)\]
