    now call the midpoint of AB point M call the midpoint of BC point N

    ohh i subtracted the first one instead of adding my bad

    the diagonals will cross at the point that has the x coordinate of M and the y coordinate of N So the diagonals will cross at (-5,4.5)

    but thats not one of the choices

    oh, you have to reflect it over the x axis, so the y coordinate will flip in sign and become -4.5

  16. jim_thompson5910

    so the intersection of the diagonals is (-5,-4.5)
