Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0midpoint is halfway between 2 other points 5 is halfway between 3 and what value? 11 is halfway between 5 and what value? if you know how to take an average, then 5 and 11 are your averages for x and y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0halfway should be simple enough to determine ... if you start at 3, and walk to 5, how far have you walked?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1441406683678:dw halfway is the same distance from the end points ..... if you know how far you have come, you know how far you need to go to get to the other side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can always use this :) Since we know that mid point formula is: \[M=(\frac{ x1 + x2 }{ 2 },\frac{ y1+y2 }{ 2 }) \] now we know that your end point is U (3,5), can say that this one is x1,y1 or x2,y2 to you doesn't matter, just choose one and find the other. I use the midpoint as the results since we're trying to find the other point. Cause it like to find x when you have x+y=z and y =7, z=10. ( if you still don't understand, please feel free to tag me or ask again so I could explain more properly) so, it should look like this: \[( \frac{ 3+x2 }{ 2 }) = 5 \] 3+x2=10 x2=7 \[(\frac{ 5+y2 }{ 2 }) = 11\] 5+y2=22 y2=27 so the other end point if (7,22)
