Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The Midpoint UV is (5, 11). The coordinates of one endpoint are U(3,5). What is the coordinate of the endpoin V.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the formula for midpoint is \[\huge\rm (\frac{ x_1+x_2 }{ 2 } , \frac{ y_1+y_2 }{ 2 })\]given is (x_1 ,y_1) order pair and midpoint (x,y) we can separate both x's and y's \[\large\rm \frac{ x_1+x_2 }{ 2 }=(xcoordinate ~of~midpoint)\] \[\large\rm \frac{ y_1 +y_2 }{ 2 }=(ycoordinate ~of ~midpoint)\] replace (x_1 ,y_1) with the given end point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So would x_1 and y_1 be the midpoint and x_2 and y_2 the endpoint or the other way around?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no (x_1 ,y_1) is the endpoint (3,5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1like to find xcoordinate of 2nd endpoint \[\large\rm \frac{ x_1+x_2 }{ 2 }=(xcoordinate ~of~midpoint)\] \[\large\rm \frac{ 3+x_2 }{ 2 }=5\] now solve for x_2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right you can check your work \[\frac{ 3+7 }{ 2 }\] if you get 5 then yes ofc it's right bec the midpoint (5,11) is given
