Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would I have to plug something into the formula? How would the end result look

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do you know how to solve equations yet?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2maybe not... I guess since you are asking how to solve (3+c)/2=5 and also solve (5+d)/2=11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the first I would do would be to multiply both sides by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so that would give 5+d=22?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes for the second equation you have d+5=22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do you the +5 on the side with d on it you are going to minus 5 on both sides because you know 55=0 so you will have d by itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and that is right for the first equation so far

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And then you do the same to the other one too?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well not subtract 5 on both sides but subtract 3 on both sides yes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok great now remember (c,d) is the point V so your answer would be (7,27) is the other endpoint V

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the midpoint of (7,27) and (3,5) is \[(\frac{3+7}{2},\frac{27+5}{2})=(\frac{10}{2},\frac{22}{2})=(5,11)\]
