Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1find the midpoint from (1,7) to (18,22) call this midpoint M

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry for bothering you again you really help

jim_thompson5910

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

jim_thompson5910

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

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

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

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

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so that's your point M

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you must find the midpoint from the starting point (1,7) to M(9.5, 14.5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im lost, how would I do that?

jim_thompson5910

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think i have an idea

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not sure how you're getting that

jim_thompson5910

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

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so add up the coordinates, divide by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i mean would one point be 19?

jim_thompson5910

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its a mess but i tried

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(1+9.5)/2 = ???

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

jim_thompson5910

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

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so 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

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do the same for the y coordinates

ineedyouubiebs
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 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

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you typed 21.5 twice

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops my bad its 10.75

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep, so the quarter point is (5.25, 10.75)

ineedyouubiebs

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

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we're just finding midpoints

jim_thompson5910

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

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

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Add in the midpoint dw:1379390452778:dw

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would the final answer be 5.25 or 10.75

jim_thompson5910

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

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they are used together to report the answer

jim_thompson5910

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

ineedyouubiebs
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the final answer would be (5.25,10.75)

ineedyouubiebs

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

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1each and every point on a 2D coordinate grid is always of the form (x,y)

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you need both x and y to figure out where you are on this grid
