    Wait, hm, is that the correct graph for this problem? The question mentions X Y and Z and I can't seem to find any of those on the shape.

    Is the original question the one you are confused on? the point X is located... etc?

    Is Y somewhere between X and Z? Almost forming a triangle shaped...?

    I figured out the weird triangle one, now I just have a question about the point x one

    Please rewrite the question below my comment, I am a bit confused about which exact question. Is the one that is your current question?

    @tw101 , are you familiar with the 'Distance Formula' at all?

    I believe it wants the midpoint...

    It says that point Y is located at the distance of point X to point Z, not between them I believe. But I could be mistaken.

    isnt it c^2=a^2+b^2?

    "Find the y value for the point Y that is located the distance from point X to point Z." It could be asking for what y-value is the same distance from x as from z.

    Also, trying to find the distance of it would not get us anywhere and midpoint makes more sense.

    \(\sf\Large Midpoint=(\frac{x_1+x_2}{2},\frac{y_1+y_2}{2})\) and that is for two points: \(\sf (x_1,y_1)\) and \(\sf (x_2,y_2)\)

    mhmm, the answer isn't there. So it isn't the midpoint :/
