find the midpoint from (1,7) to (18,22) call this midpoint M

sorry for bothering you again you really help
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
once you have M, use this to find the midpoint from (1,7) to M
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
this works because the quarter point is exactly half way between the starting point and the midpoint
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and what about the "onefourth" in the sentence, what do we do with that?
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
look at my next post after that

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
@jim_thompson5910 okay, i got (9.5,14.5)
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so that's your point M
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now you must find the midpoint from the starting point (1,7) to M(9.5, 14.5)
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
im lost, how would I do that?
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the same way you found the midpoint between the two original points (ignore M)
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i think i have an idea
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i cant write it in the equation button, but would it be 1+x^2
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
not sure how you're getting that
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
just find the midpoint between (1,7) and (9.5, 14.5)
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so add up the coordinates, divide by 2
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i mean would one point be 19?
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
how are you getting 19?

its a mess but i tried
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
(1+9.5)/2 = ???
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
can you please set it up into the formula. this is new stuff for me and tommorow i have a test based on this
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what does (1+9.5)/2 evaluate to
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so that's the x coordinate of the midpoint between (1,7) and (9.5, 14.5) ie...it's the x coordinate of the quarter point
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
do the same for the y coordinates
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so for the y coordinates i would add 7+14.5 which will give me 21.5 and then divide it by 2 which will give me 21.5
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you typed 21.5 twice
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oops my bad its 10.75
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yep, so the quarter point is (5.25, 10.75)
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay so will i always divide by 2? how do i know what do divide to? and would i always be adding as well?
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
we're just finding midpoints
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
a quarter point is a midpoint between the start and the original midpoint

 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and what would we do if it was asking for the 1/2 of the way?
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Add in the midpoint dw:1379390452778:dw
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now add in the point which is 1/4 way from P to Q, call this point N point N is the midpoint between P and M dw:1379390509988:dw
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so would the final answer be 5.25 or 10.75
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
in retrospect, i should have named the quarter point Q, oh well
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
they are used together to report the answer
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
since all points are of the form (x,y)
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so the final answer would be (5.25,10.75)
 7 months ago

ineedyouubiebsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
even though its just asking for 1 point? how do i know which point is it x or y?
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
each and every point on a 2D coordinate grid is always of the form (x,y)
 7 months ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so you need both x and y to figure out where you are on this grid
