Please help On a school map, the points (-7, -2), (-7, 4), (-1, -2), and (-1, 4) represent the four corners of a sand park. What are the coordinates of the center of the sand park? (-4, 3) (-3, 1) (-3, -3) (-4, 1)
this was one was the orginal I was gonna ask for help
ok do u have graph paper?
No just line paper with me right now
okay, then we use the midpoint formula, do you know it
I think can you write it and ill try
hold on ill try 2 solve it
@warningiflirt ok me too
omg so frustrating im getting out the graph paper lol
(-4, 1), i graphed it and that's clearly the middle, im taking geometry now also so i have alot of graph paper :)
this website has a calc 4 distance formula jst 4 2 coordinates it should help with basic probs :) http://www.mathportal.org/calculators.php
alright I'm trying to also see if i can get the same answer
k you can make a graph on line paper i guess

yes I got the same thing and that's how it came out on my paper- my bad graph but that looks correct to me
|dw:1376431542941:dw| lol the midpoint it looks wayyyyy better on real graph paper
@warningiflirt thanks for helping me understand that better
