what are the two points and what is your answer?

The 2 points are A 1,321 and B 517. My answer is 919

how is point B 517?

it should be an ordered pair

points are of the form (x,y)

No the question issnt asking for ordered pairs. It's a line with points so it'll be likedw:1379387454390:dw

and then its asking for the distance from either endpoint to the midpoint

oh it's on a number line, i see

I thought when you wrote out A 1,321 you meant (1,321) or something

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
the distance from A 1,321 and B 517 on the number line is found by subtracting 517  ( 1321) 517 + 1321 1838

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
so the distance from A to B is 1838 units

cut that distance in half to get your answer

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

What would the midpont be?
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
add the two values, then divide by 2 to get the midpoint

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

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yep, that's correct because the formula is M = (x1+x2)/2

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Okay, I have another question if you dont mind

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

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I got 194.5 but im not sure
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
good, but it's negative
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
since 421 is a much bigger number in the negative direction
 7 months ago

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

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
hmm you're probably thinking distance and not midpoint
 7 months ago

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

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yes midpoints can easily be negative
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay, thank you:) i appreciate it
