Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the midpoint we need to think averages the average of two numbers is the sum of those numbers divided by 2 the x coordinate of the midpoint is equal to the sum of the xcoordinates of the endpoint divided by 2 the y coordinate of the midpoint is equal to the sum of the ycoordinates of the endpoint divided by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is x??? how do I do 3+x if I dont know what x is where did you get x from??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the "xcoordinate of the midpoint" is equal to the "sum of the xcoordinates of the endpoints" "divided by 2"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2V is a point in the form (x,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the xcoordinate of V is x the ycoordinate of V is y since I chose V to be the point (x,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm sorry I thought I did... Can you tell me what you don't understand? Like the division? To find the average of two numbers... You do the sum of those numbers and then you divide 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So if I told you the average of x and 3 is 5 ? This doesn't make sense how I got this: \[\frac{x+3}{2}=5?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no you are looking for V and V is a point on the cartesian plane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you are given by your question the following to find x and y: The average of x and 3 is 5. The average of y and 5 is 11.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I already said we are looking for V , one of the endpoints which I called (x,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm trying too... so what do you not understand about the following equations: \[5=\frac{3+x}{2} \\ 11=\frac{5+y}{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do I add 3 to x and 5 to y..

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because that is all the midpoint is is averaging

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2multiply both sides by 2

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2don't understand how you got that did you try multiplying both sides of the equation(s) by 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[5=\frac{3+x}{2} \\ \text{ multiply both sides by 2 } \\ 10=3+x \\ \text{ now isolate } x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you don't want to try to subtract 3 on both sides to isolate x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it would just be x over 2 ....

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you do understand we had 5=(3+x)/2 then I asked you to multiply 2 on both sides giving us 10=3+x the last step to find the xcoordinate of v is to subtract 3 on both sides 103=x why are you doing something different from what I suggest?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now try solving for y coordinate of V 11=(5+y)/2
