Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Step 1: Use the midpoint formula to find point C. Step 2: Use the slope formula (y2y1/x2x1) to find the slope of the ordered pairs. Since the lines are perpendicular, take that slope and find the opposite reciprocal. So if it's 4 then the slope of the perp. line would be 1/4. Step 3: Plug your point C and the perp. slope from Step 2 into the slopeintercept formula ( y=mx+b) and then find b. The b is the yintercept of the perpendicular bisector. Repeat all these steps until you have all the yintercepts of the perpendicular bisectors. Then order the points by their corresponding yintercepts. I realize you posted this 10 months ago. But in case another person needs to find the answer, I've posted the solution. Cheers!
