Q:
# What is the abscissa of the midpoint of the line segment whose endpoints are (5, 2) and (2, 2)?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Midpoint is (3.5, 2)Step-by-step explanation:the midpoint of the line segment whose endpoints are (5, 2) and (2, 2)To find midpoint of two end points we use formula[tex](\frac{x_1+x_2}{2} , \frac{y_1+y_2}{2})[/tex](5, 2) , x1 = 5 and y1= 2(2,2), x2=2 and y2= 2Plug in all the values and find the midpoint using the formula[tex](\frac{5+2}{2},\frac{2+2}{2})[/tex][tex](\frac{7}{2},\frac{4}{2})[/tex](3.5, 2)So midpoint is (3.5,2)
