I tried this once:P but the answer I came out with wasn't right: M is the midpoint of segment AB. Find the coordinates of B given A(5,1) and M(2,4).
Use the formula for this which is: (to find the x coordinate of B) xcoordinate of M = xcoordinate of A + xcoordinate of B /2
(to find the y coordinate of B) ycoordinate of M = ycoordinate of A + ycoordinate of B /2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah, but I need to see how to solve it this way, cause I tried but messed up. :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Did you at least figure out what the coordinates of B?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, that would be a good start. If you use graph paper, you would be able to figure out the points. Then after that, you could use the midpoint formula easily, since you'd already know the coordinates of B.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Notice, if you solve each of those equations you wrote above, you will find x and y as well.
