Hey i need help with finding the midpoint when given two endpoints! Help!

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Use the midpoint formula. It's the same as averaging each coordinate (i.e. average the x-coordinates, average the y's, etc.)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

So x1 Plus X2 /2 , then the Y?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yeah. (X1+X2)/2, same with Y's.

How do you find a midpoint of a segment when it is graphed?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

You find the middle point of the graphed segment that splits that segment into two subsegments of equal length.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yes but how algebraicly?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

You average the X and Y coordinates of the endpoints the way I mentioned above.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Just the same way Oh Okay thanks

How about finding the center with the diameter shown?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Take the endpoints of the diamenter and do the same thing.
