what is the formula for finding point A on a line graph when only the coordinates of the midpoint and point B are known?

 

thanks

Remember that to find the x coordinate of the midpoint  we add the x coordinates of the two endpoints and divide by 2 and do the same for the y coordinates to find the y coordinate of the midpoint

 

So...we have that

 

[ Ax + Bx ] / 2     = x coordinate of the midpoint

 

So.......

 

Ax + Bx  =   2 * x coordinate of the midpoint

 

Ax  =   2 * x coordinate of the midpoint  - Bx

 

Similarly

 

[Ay + By ] / 2  =  y coordinate of the midpoint

 

Ay + By   =  2 * y coordinate of the midpoint

 

Ay  =   2 * y coordinate of the midpoint -  By

 

 

cool cool cool
