What is the slope of the line containing the midpoint of the segment with endpoints at (2, 4) and (0, -2) and the midpoint of the segment with endpoints at (5, 1) and (1, 5)? Express your answer in simplest form. Thank You!

First....find the midpoints    :  First one  (1,1)       second one  (3,3)

   then find the slope   ( 1-3)/(1-3)  =  1 = slope

Remember, the slope formula is

 

(y1-y2)/(x1-x2)
