Hey intelligent !!!Any help could be appreciated:- If a parallel sides of a trapezoid are contained by the lines Y=1/4 x +5 and Y=- 1/4 x -1 find the equation of the line that contains the mid segment. Please show me the equation to solve this!!!!!!!!!

you said they're parallel sides, but the equations have opposite slopes. is there a typo ?
Those lines aren't parallel. They can't be parallel sides since they have different slopes.

check ur equations and confirm :)
that is why I have strugling
wrong problem. skip and move on :)
You definitely didn't type this word-for-word. "If a parallel sides of a trapezoid are contained by the lines...." isn't even good English.
ha ha ha ah sorry guys it is the way it is
np :) check wid the instructor if there is a typo. this kindof problem is pretty easy to solve actually
you just need to find the y intercept using midpoint formula
I thought about midpoint formula too
Any way thanks a lot.
trap and lines
i am correcting the given quesiton :-

so the slope is 1/4
y intercept of first equation = 5
y intercept of second equation = -1
since midsegement is parallel to the base sides of trap,
slope of midsegment is same as the base sides = 1/4
y intercept wid be average of the y intercepts of base sides = 5-1/2 = 4/2 = 2
so the equation for line containing midsegment wud be :-
y = 1/4x + 2
