The midpoint of a line segment is located at . If one of the endpoints is , what is the other endpoint? Express your answer as an ordered pair.
I think the question may not have been copied and pasted fully.
Also, try looking at past questions to try to answer this one. :))
I messed it up sorry!! the real question is:
The midpoint of a line segment is located at (1 -2). If one of the endpoints is (4, 5) , what is the other endpoint? Express your answer as an ordered pair.
Let's think about this one. The mid point is the average of the 2 end poitns.
The end point is 4 and the middle point is 1.
The average of the x coordinate and 4 is 1.
(x+4)/2 = 1
Can you solve for x?
After solving for x, you also have to solve for y.
Use the same method as x. :)))
so the endpoint is 5 and the middle point is -2 , i dont know how to find the average between the y coordinate and 5 though. would it still be 1 like with the other one?
To solve for it.
(y+5)/2 = -2.
The average of the y coordinate and 5 is equal to -2.
