# Find the midpoint of the line segment that joins each pair of points: a) 0 , - 3 and 4, 0 c) 3, 2 and 5 , - 2 b) - 2, 5 and 4 , - 3 d) a , 0 and 0 , b

To determine

(a)

To find:

The midpoint between the points 0,-3 and 4, 0.

Explanation

The midpoint of the two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) can be determined by,

M=x1+x22,y1+y22

From the given points 0,-3 and 4, 0,

x1=0

y1=-3

x2=4

y2=0

Substitute these values in the midpoint formula,

M=x1+x22,y<

To determine

(b)

To find:

The midpoint between the points -2, 5 and 4,-3.

To determine

(c)

To find:

The midpoint between the points 3, 2 and 5,-2.

To determine

(d)

To find:

The midpoint between the points a,0 and 0,b.
