Q:
# find the midpoint of the segment between the points (8,-10) and (-10,-8)

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:(-1, -9)Step-by-step explanation:Recall that for 2 points (x1, y1) and (x2,y2)the midpoints are given by x ordinate = [tex]\frac{x1+x2}{2}[/tex] y ordinate = [tex]\frac{y1+y2}{2}[/tex]In our case x1 = 8, y1 = -10, x2 = -10, y2=-8x ordinate = [tex]\frac{x1+x2}{2}[/tex] = [8 + (-10) ] / 2 = -1y ordinate = [tex]\frac{y1+y2}{2}[/tex] = [-10 + (-8) ] / 2 = -9hence midpoint is (-1, -9)
