DId you get an answer yet?
Well since (2, -5) is your midpoint and one of your endpoints is (3, -6), where do you think you the other endpoint is or how do you think you can get it.

whoops my bad. Your endpoint is (3, 6). So can you think of a way that might work?
For points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2), the midpoint is ( (x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2 )
You have (x1, y1) = (3, 6) and midpoint (2, -5), so
(3 + x2)/2 = 3
(6 + y2)/2 = -5
Solve the above equations for x2 and y2
Well mathstudent your equation is wrong for the first one. It should = 2
