    On a school map, the points (-1, -9), (-1, -1), (7, -9), and (7, -1) represent the four corners of a sand park. What are the coordinates of the center of the sand park?

    Did you graph this on graph paper first? If you did, you would be able to figure it out really quickly.

    I don't have graph paper, but I did it on regular paper (so the lines aren't completely exact) but I can't tell if its B or C

    I would not attempt to do this without graph paper.

    I am not sure about this, but maybe if you used the formula to find the midpoint of a segment, you'll probably get the center of the sand park. I am thinking the (-1,-1) and (7,-9)

    k, that's how you would solve without the use of graphing paper
