## Midpoint

[edit | edit source]Midpoint: a point that is in the middle of the line joining two points.

**Example:**

If C is in the middle of A (5,4) and B (2, 1)

(5+2/2, 4+1/2) | 5+2 = 7/2 = 3.5 and 4+1 = 5/2 = 2.5 that means C is (3.5,2.5)

Now You Try:

## Distance

[edit | edit source]Distance: The Difference Between 2 Points/coordinates

1. What Would The Distance Be Between (3,7) and (-1,7)

√(-1-3)^2 + (7-7)^2 then √(-4)^2 + (0)^2 and now when you add, it's √16, and √16 is 4.

2. What Would The Distance Be Between (4,6) and (2,8)

√(2-4)^2 + (8-6)^2 then √(-2)^2 + (2)^2 and now when you add, it's √8 then simplified then its 2√2, that's your answer!

Now You Try:
