Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The 2 points are A 1,321 and B 517. My answer is 919

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No the question issnt asking for ordered pairs. It's a line with points so it'll be likedw:1379387454390:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and then its asking for the distance from either endpoint to the midpoint

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh it's on a number line, i see

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I thought when you wrote out A 1,321 you meant (1,321) or something

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the distance from A 1,321 and B 517 on the number line is found by subtracting 517  ( 1321) 517 + 1321 1838

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the distance from A to B is 1838 units

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2cut that distance in half to get your answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correct.Okay, when I divide it by 2 I get 919

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What would the midpont be?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2add the two values, then divide by 2 to get the midpoint

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh, so instead of subtracting like we did here, we add!1 ohhhhh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yep, that's correct because the formula is M = (x1+x2)/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What would the midpoint of Line AB is at 421 and A is at 32?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got 194.5 but im not sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2good, but it's negative

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2since 421 is a much bigger number in the negative direction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but before we were taught that we would always put the absolute value of that number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmm you're probably thinking distance and not midpoint

ineedyouubiebs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeahhh! oh so when finding the midpoint the number COULD be negative, correct?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes midpoints can easily be negative
