Zale101 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
solve this for me (5+(3))/(6+2) = ?

Zale101 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
which equals 1

leslie096 Group TitleBest 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

That's fine, but u need to keep in mind what's endpoint and what's midpoint

Zale101 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
midpoint means middle point endpoints means end of the line points

just making it clear for u

ok. but what comes after we find the midpoint?

Use this formula to find the the pointslope form of a line y  y1 = m(x  x1)
 one year ago

Zale101 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so we should plug in the numbers y  1 = (9/7)(x  2)

Ohhhh! so its 9x7y=24
 one year ago

Zale101 Group TitleBest 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
