Express slopes as reduced, improper fractions. Round all other numeric answers to the nearest tenth, if necessary. A music company has stores in Abby (−2, −1) and Cardenas (4, 7). Each unit in the coordinate plane represents 1 mile. The company president wants to build a warehouse that is equidistant from the two stores.

The midpoint   =  location of warehouse  =

 

[ (-2 + 4)/2  ,  (-1 + 7) / 2 ]    =    [ 1, 3]

 

The distance  that this warehouse from either store is  :

 

sqrt  [  (1 - 4)^2  + ( 3 - 7)^2 ]   =   sqrt  [ 3^2  + 4^2 ]  =  sqrt (25)   =  5 miles
