## pooja195 one year ago Just out of curiosity can the midpoint formula have fraction coordinates? If so can you please show me an example ? :)

1. anonymous

pick anything

2. anonymous

the average of an even and an odd number is not a whole number

3. anonymous

so for example the midpoint of $$(1,3)$$ and $$(8,10)$$ would have fractions

4. anonymous

and of course the midpoint of $$(\frac{5}{7},-\frac{8}{3})$$ and $$(\frac{2}{3},-\frac{5}{4})$$ would be nice and ugly

LOL so is it possible to have something like this then? (1/2,5/6) (3,5/4) ? the work you did i already knew but is it EVER possible to have something like this?

6. anonymous

not sure what you are asking you can always find the midpoint of two points, because you can always take the average of any two numbers
