Q:
# find the midpoint of the segment with the following endpoints (2,4) and(8,8)

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:(5,6)Step-by-step explanation:just answered a similar question for you a while ago so I have updated by response to match the different values:the midpoint formula is(x1 + x2/2) , (y1 + y2/2) <-- both the x1 and y1 coordinates also are divided by 2so to solve for the midpoint, we take our endpoints and plug it into the formulawe will list the coordinates as the following to plug it into the formula:x coordinate 1 = 2x coordinate 2 = 8y coordinate 1 = 4y coordinate 2 = 8substituting these values into the formula we get this:x =(2 + 8/2) , y = (4 + 8/2)x = 2 + 8 = 10/2 = 5 which is our x coordinate for the midpointy = 4 + 8 = 12/2 = 6 which is our y coordinate for the midpointin an ordered pair it would be (5, 6)
