Use the diagram below for the following question.

P(2,1), Q(11,1), and R(8,7)

M and N are the midpoints ofandrespectively.

Find MN and PQ.

How do these lengths compare with each other?.

"M and N are the midpoints ofandrespectively"

From the context of the problem I will assume you meant

"M and N are the midpoints of RP and RQ respectively"

M is (5,4) and N is (9.5 , 4)

MN = √((9.5-5)^2 + (4-4)^2) = 4.5

PQ = √((11-2)^2 + 0^2) = 9

So what do you think?

( I suggest you also check the slopes of MN and PQ )
