Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Consider one coordinate at a time. Take the xcoordinates, for example. Endpoint U has an xcoordinate of 3 and the midpoint has an xcoordinate of 5. The xcoordinate of endpoint V will be the same horizontal distance away from the midpoint.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then what xcoordinate would be 2 units away from 5, and in the opposite direction from endpoint U?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Very good. Now do the same thing with the ycoordinates. Endpoint U has ycoordinate of 5, midpoint has ycoordinate of 11. Endpoint V has a ycoordinate the same vertical distance away from the midpoint in the direction opposite to endpoint U.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, I'm confused, same vertical distance away from he midpoint and the endpoint U?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK. How many units do you need to move to go from 5 to 11?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Great. So keep going another 16 units and where do you end up?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. Maybe the explanation is not clear. In the vertical direction (specified by the ycoordinates) you moved from a ycoordinate of 5 to a ycoordinate of 11  a vertical distance of 16 units (technically 16 units). Keep moving another 16 units from 11 and where do you end up?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. Now you have your x and ycoordinates for the other endpoint.
