Find segment lengths

Find Segment Lengths

  • M is the midpoint of AB. Find AM and MB.

  • AM = MB = ½ (AB)

  • = ½ (26)

  • = 13

Find segment lengths1

Find Segment Lengths

  • P is the midpoint of RS. Find PS and RS.

  • RP = PS so PS = 7

  • RS = 2 (RP)

  • = 2 (7)

  • = 14

The midpoint formula

The Midpoint Formula

  • The coordinates of the

    midpoint of a segment

    are the averages of the

    x-coordinates and the

    y-coordinates of the

    endpoints

The midpoint formula1

The Midpoint Formula

  • The coordinates of the

    midpoint of AB is:

    M x1 + x2 , y1 + y2
