slope of MN = d/2 _____d/2 = _______

____________ a+c/2-c/2 =________ a+c/2 - c/2

slope of AB = ______-______=_______=____

a a

please any help would be greatly appreciated thanks so much!!!!

**Reiny**, Thursday, July 28, 2011 at 8:59amFor the x of the midpoint, add the x-coordinates of the two endpoint and divide by 2, (averaging them)

So for M we get

( (0+c)/2 , (0+d)/2) = (c/2, d/2)

for N

( (a+c)/2 , (d+0)/2) = ( (a+c/2 , d/2)

slope of MN = (d/2 - d/2)/((c+a)/2 - c/2)

= 0/ ??? = 0

slope of AB = (0-0)/(a-0) = 0/a = 0

so MN || AB
