M is the midpoint of segment AN, A has coordinates (-6,2) and M has coordinates (-1, -3). What are the coordinates of N?

  • Geometry -

    -1 - (-6) = +5
    -1 + 5 = 4

    -3 -2 = -5
    -3 +(-5) = -8
    so
    (4,-8)

    check
    Is -1 halfway between -6 and +4
    yes
    Is -3 halfway between 2 and -8
    yes

  • Geometry -

    Ok, I think I understand. so the coordinates of N are (4, -8)

  • Geometry -

    yes

  • Geometry -

    Graph it to see what I did.

    Thanks so much! I get it now
