Suppose the coordinate of P is 2, PQ = 8, and PR = 12. What are the possible coordinates of the midpoint of the given segment?

  • Geometry -

    PQ = 8, PR = 12.

    P(2,0), M(X,0), Q(X1,0),R(X2,0).

    X2 - 2 = 12,
    X2 = 14.

    X2 - 2 = 2(X-2),
    12 = 2X - 4,
    2X = 16,
    X = 8.

    M(8,0) = Coordinates of mid-point.
