    For this question, you have to find the length of the line and the midpoint so first let's do the length. Do you know the formula to find the length between two points (the distance formula)?

    if you do know it, then all you have to do is plug in the two points into the distance formula and you'll find the length. Tell me when you get your answer so I can see if we have the same one.

    yup, exactly. that's the distance. perfect. Now to find the midpoint. Do you know the midpoint formula?

    then just plug the two points into the formula and then tell me your answer when you are done.
