Q:
# Determine the midpoint of the segment with endpoints (-10,-11) and (8,-17)

Accepted Solution

A:

The correct answer is:

(-1, -14).

Explanation:

The way to find a midpoint is by taking the average of each coordinate.

Since the x values are -10 and 8, the average would be -1:

[tex] \frac{-10+8}{2} [/tex] = -1.

Since the y values are -11 and -17, the average would be -14:

[tex] \frac{-11+-17}{2} [/tex] = -14.

Therefore the ordered pair is (-1, -14)

(-1, -14).
