**Reiny**, Friday, May 6, 2011 at 10:22am1. and 2. are correct

Both of your midpoints are wrong.

To get the midpoint, ADD the x's and divide by 2, then add the y's and divide by 2

so

3. for the x's (-7 + (-1))/2 = -4

for the y's (7+7)/2 = 7

midpoint is (-4,7) which would be c)

try 4. the same way and you should get (3,5)
