  • Algebra: Check please -

    1. 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)
