What is the slope of the line containing the midpoint of the segment with endpoints at (0, 0) and (2, 3) and the midpoint of the segment with endpoints at (-5, 0) and (6, 3)? Express your answer in simplest form.

Midpoint of  first  segment  =  

 

[ ( 2 + 0)/2  , (3 + 0) /2  ]  =    ( 1 , 3/2  )

 

 

Midpoint of second segment

 

[ (-5 + 6)  /2  ,  ( 3 + 0) / 2   ] =     ( 1/2  ,  3/2)

 

Since  the y values  of  these   midpoints are the  same, the slope of the lie  containing them   =   0
