    The difference between points P and M is 10.3 so add 10.3 to the midpoint (3.4) and you would get 13.7.

    jdoe0001 was wrong. This problem does not involve coordinate points so you do not use the midpoint formula.

    I mean, it does it does involve coordinates, just not the (x,y) ones ya know what I mean right?
