# What does midpoint formula do?

It finds the co-ordinates of the midpoint of a line segment, given the co-ordinates of the two endpoints.

### What is a midpoint in coordinates?

Mid Point Definition: The point halfway between the endpoints of a line segment is called the midpoint. A midpoint divides a line segment into two equal parts. Mid Point Formula: MidPoint where (x1, y1) (x2, y2) be the end points of a line segment. MidPoint Diagram Mid Point Example: Find the coordinates of the midpoint of the line joining (-1, -3), (-5, -7). x1 = -1, y1 = -3 and x2 = -5, y2 =…

### How do you find an endpoint if you are given the other endpoint and the midpoint?

You practically just use the midpoint formula. M(x,y)= (x1 + x2, y1 + y2) ---------- -------- (the 2 is part of a fraction for the midpoint formula) ---> 2 2 For ex. The midpoint of JK is (3,4). One endpoint is K(-3,-2). (-3 + y2 , -2 + y2). -------- --------- 2 2 You Multiply the midpoint coordinates to the denominators. So the midpoint coordinate 3 is multiplied to the first denominator and 4 is…

### How do you find the center of an equilateral triangle?

You can use the midpoint formula, if you know all of the vertexes' coordinates. For example, say you have an equilateral triangle with vertexes at points (0,0), (4,0), and (2,sqrt12). I'll choose (2,sqrt12) as my base of operations. (sqrt is the shortened form of "square root of") First, I find the midpoint between (0,0) and (4,0), which is (2,0). Next, I find the midpoint of (2,0) and (2,sqrt12). The midpoint formula is ((x1 + x2)/2…

### The endpoints of a segment are given Determine the midpoint of the segment if C 2 6 and D 4 0?

The midpoint formula is: [(x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2]. If we denote the coordinates of the point C as (x1, y1) = (2, 6), and the coordinates of the point D as (x2, y2) = (4, 0), we can find the coordinates of the midpoint by using the above formula. So, [(x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2] = [(2 + 4)/2, (6 + 0)/2] = (3, 3)

### How do you find an endpoint of a line if you are given an endpoint and the midpoint?

Ok. The midpoint formula: [(x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2] So for instance if your coordinates were endpoint : (-8,10) and the Midpoint: (-2,6) By substituting the given values into the formula we have: (x1 + -8)/2 = -2 and (y1 + 10)/2 = 6 x1 - 8 = -4 and y1 + 10 = 12 x1 -8 + 8 = -4 + 8 and y1 + 10 - 10 = 12 - 10 x1…
