Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For the midpoint, we have to us this formula ((x1+x2)/2,(y1+y2)/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you know how to plug in the numbers into the formula's, like what i did here for example (5+(3))/(6+2) = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then after that i just do yy1= 1(x1x. which is y+3=1(x5)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@satellite73, i actually read the question wrong lol from where did u get 24? 7y  7 = 9x + 18 7y = 9x + 25 9x  7y = 25
