D. x - y = -1

Given triangle ABC with A(-3, 4), B(5, 8), and C(2, -2), write the equation of the line containing midsegment line XZ in standard form, where X is the midpoint of line AB and Z is the midpoint of line BC.

A. 6x - 5y = -24
B. 2x + 5y = 32
C. 2x - 5y = -28
D. 6x + 5y = 36

  1. In any isosceles triangle, the perimeter is the base plus 2 times one of the legs. Clearly the base here is 8.

    No idea where R is.

    X = (A+B)/2 = (1,6)
    Z = (B+C)/2 = (7/2,3)
    XZ in two-point form is
    y-6 = (-6/5)(x-1)
    Now just rearrange that into standard form.

    across y = -5: (x,y)->(x,-10-y)
    across x = 1: (x,y)->(2-x,y)
    both: (x,y)->(2-x,-10-y)
    So, (-2,-1)->(4,-9)
