## Barrelracer17 one year ago Find the coordinates for the midpoint of the segment with endpoints given. (3, 5) and (-2, 0)

1. pooja195

$\huge~\rm~m=\frac{ x_1+x_2 }{ 2 },\frac{ y_1+y_2 }{ 2 }$

2. pooja195

Use that and plug in the numbers :)

3. pooja195

$\huge~\rm~m=\frac{ 3-2 }{ 2 },\frac{ 5+0 }{ 2 }$

4. pooja195

Im sure you can take it from there :)

5. Barrelracer17

Thank. You so much

6. pooja195

No problem :) but you still need to find x and y

7. Barrelracer17

Do I use that to find x and y?

8. pooja195

$\huge~\rm~m=\frac{ 3-2 }{ 2 },\frac{ 5+0 }{ 2 }$ $$\huge\color{red}{(x,y)}$$

9. pooja195

whats 3-2?

10. Barrelracer17

1

11. pooja195

$$\huge\color{red}{x=1/2}$$

12. pooja195

5+0= ?

13. Barrelracer17

5

14. pooja195

$$\huge\color{red}{y=5/2}$$

15. pooja195

16. Barrelracer17

Well 1/2 is .5 and 5/2 is 2.5 according to my calculator

17. pooja195

keep it as a fraction

18. Barrelracer17

Thank you so much
