1. a.FIND MIDPOINTThe endpoints ofRSare R(1,–3) and S(4, 2). Find the coordinates of the midpoint M. EXAMPLE 3 Use the Midpoint Formula

2. SOLUTION 1 , – , M M = 2 5 a.FIND MIDPOINTUse the Midpoint Formula. 2 The coordinates of the midpoint Mare 1 5 – , 2 2 ANSWER – 3 + 2 1 + 4 2 2 EXAMPLE 3 Use the Midpoint Formula

3. b.FIND ENDPOINTThe midpoint of JKis M(2, 1). One endpoint is J(1, 4). Find the coordinates of endpoint K. EXAMPLE 3 Use the Midpoint Formula

4. STEP 1 Find x. STEP 2 Find y. 4+ y 1+ x 1 2 = = 2 2 ANSWER The coordinates of endpoint Kare (3, – 2). EXAMPLE 3 Use the Midpoint Formula SOLUTION FIND ENDPOINTLet (x, y) be the coordinates of endpoint K. Use the Midpoint Formula. 4 + y = 2 1 + x = 4 y =–2 x =3

5. 3. The endpoints of ABare A(1, 2) andB(7, 8). Find the coordinates of the midpoint M. ANSWER (4,5) 4. The midpoint of VWis M(– 1, – 2). One endpoint is W(4, 4). Find the coordinates of endpoint V. ANSWER (– 6, – 8) for Example 3 GUIDED PRACTICE
