Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh, you have to reflect it over the x axis, so the y coordinate will flip in sign and become 4.5
