For the midpoint, we have to us this formula ((x1+x2)/2,(y1+y2)/2)

its ok i messed up too. it's 2, 3/2 or 7/2?

((2+(6))/2= 2 (3+5)/2= 1

the slope is (change in y)/(change in x)

So (5+(3))/(6+2) = ?

Zale101Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Do you know how to plug in the numbers into the formula's, like what i did here for example (5+(3))/(6+2) = ?

Zale101Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
solve this for me (5+(3))/(6+2) = ?

sooo 35/2+6 = 8/8?

leslie096Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so then after that i just do yy1= 1(x1x. which is y+3=1(x5)?

1 and 2 are the midpoints
 9 months ago

Zale101Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
this means the midpoint is (2,1)
 9 months ago

leslie096Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so then what comes after finding the midpoint

Zale101Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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

Zale101Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
That's fine, but u need to keep in mind what's endpoint and what's midpoint
 9 months ago

Zale101Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
midpoint means middle point endpoints means end of the line points

leslie096Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i know what midpoints and endpoints are.
 9 months ago

Zale101Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
just making it clear for u

leslie096Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok. but what comes after we find the midpoint?

Zale101Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Use this formula to find the the pointslope form of a line y  y1 = m(x  x1)
 9 months ago

Zale101Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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)."

leslie096Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ohhhh! so its 9x7y=24
 9 months ago

Zale101Best 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
