Let's just draw number line:|dw:1436910305137:dw| Since they didn't say about about the value of R, S, and T, we can just assume that R = 0. So S would be 6, and T would be 15.

S to T is 9

"midpoints" is basically point that lie exactly in middle. So midpoint of RS is 3, because R is 0 and S is 6 \(\dfrac{0+6}2=3\) Another way to see is that distance between R and S is 6, so half of that is 3.

Does that make sense? What is midpoint of ST?

Hopefully you found the answer to part A |dw:1436912651346:dw| the distance between the midpoints is the distance from A to B 3+4.5 = 7.5
