Solutions

Chapter B, Problem 44E
To determine

To calculate: To find the mid-point of the line segment joining the points (1,3) and (7,15)

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 44E

Mid-point is (4,9)

Explanation of Solution

Given information: Points are (1,3) and (7,15)

Formula Used:

The mid-point of the line segment from P1(x1,y1) to P2(x2,y2) is x1+x22,y1+y22

Calculation:

Points are given as follows:

  (1,3) and (7,15)

Mid-point of the line segment joining above two points is calculated as

  (x,y)=x1+x22,y1+y22

Substituting the values,

  (x,y)=1+72,3+152(x,y)=82,182(x,y)=4,9

Conclusion:

Hence, mid-point is (4,9)
