Step 1

a)

The given points are P (–5, –6), and Q (7, –1).

Let (x1, y1) = (–5, –6) and (x2, y2) = (7, –1). Then x1 = –5, x2 = 7, y1 = –6 and y2 = –1.

Substitute the values x1 = –5, x2 = 7, y1 = –6 and y2 = –1 in the distance formula to find the distance as follows.

Step 2

Simplify the function as follows.

Step 3

(b)

The coordinates of the midpoint M of the line...
