    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?

    |dw:1345069632233:dw| find the midpoint distances, then add them to the bottom left coordinate

    @completeidiot Is it c. (3,-5)?

    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)

    or (-1, -9) and (7, -1)

    With (-1, -9) and (7, -1) I got (3,-5)

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