    once you have M, use this to find the midpoint from (1,7) to M

    this works because the quarter point is exactly half way between the starting point and the midpoint

    and what about the "one-fourth" in the sentence, what do we do with that?

    now you must find the midpoint from the starting point (1,7) to M(9.5, 14.5)

    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

  32. jim_thompson5910
    • 2 years ago

    do the same for the y coordinates

  33. ineedyouubiebs

    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

    each and every point on a 2D coordinate grid is always of the form (x,y)

    so you need both x and y to figure out where you are on this grid
