    K so a midpoint is basically an average of the x points and of the y points. The formula is x1+x2 divided by 2, y1+y2 divided by 2. If we do this we get- (-2+-3) (1+2) ------- & ----- 2 2 -5/2, 3/2= (-2.5,1.5)

    Wires are attached to a pole to make it more secure. The diagram shows one of those wires having a length of 220 feet. The angle of elevation from the ground to the top of the pole is 36. What is the height of the pole?

    This can be solved with trigonometry. The hypotenuse has been given and the opposite side is needed. In this case, we will need to use sine. sin = opposite/hypotenuse let the opposite side length be y so sin(36) = y/220 220sin(36) = y plug that into a scientific calculator and you get 129.3ft so the answer is D
