For the midpoint, we have to us this formula ((x1+x2)/2,(y1+y2)/2)
Was the slope given? It loks like you forgot to add it or no?
Wait where did you get 9 from? zale101
oh i'm sorry lol
So here we have ((2+(-6))/2,(-3+5)/2) =
its ok i messed up too. it's 2, 3/2 or 7/2?
((2+(-6))/2= -2 (-3+5)/2= 1
oh ok. what's next?
the slope is (change in y)/(change in x)
So (5+(-3))/(-6+2) = ?
Do you know how to plug in the numbers into the formula's, like what i did here for example (5+(-3))/(-6+2) = ?
solve this for me (5+(-3))/(-6+2) = ?
sooo -3-5/2+6 = -8/8?
which equals -1
so then after that i just do y-y1= -1(x1-x. which is y+3=-1(x-5)?
1 and -2 are the midpoints
this means the midpoint is (-2,1)
so then what comes after finding the midpoint
You are trying to find the midpoint of the endpoint points (2, -3) and (-6, 5).
omg i forgot to put what the slope... I'm sorry lol slope=9/7
That's fine, but u need to keep in mind what's endpoint and what's midpoint
midpoint means middle point endpoints means end of the line points
i know what midpoints and endpoints are.
just making it clear for u
ok. but what comes after we find the midpoint?
Use this formula to find the the point-slope form of a line y - y1 = m(x - x1)
so we should plug in the numbers y - 1 = (9/7)(x - -2)
"The line with slope SOMETHING MISSING HERE and containing the midpoint of the segment whose endpoints are (2, -3) and (-6, 5)."
Ohhhh! so its 9x-7y=-24
@satellite73, i actually read the question wrong lol from where did u get 24? 7y - 7 = 9x + 18 7y = 9x + 25 9x - 7y = -25
Hope i helped, sorry for taking your time
its ok. thanks for the help! :)
no problem :)
