    The segment joining the midpoints of 2 sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side of the triangle. The mid-segment DE has the same slope as segment DE. Segment AC has slope -.5. What would have to be the slope of segment DE? Post what you think, okay?

    The slope of AC is -.5 The slope of DE is the same as the slope of AC. Slope of DE = slope of AC. Slope of DE =
