Between the points (8,-6) and (-8, 6) find
A.) The distance (simplified radical form use sqrt(n).
B.) The midpoint ( use ( , ) and .5 for 1/2.

Separate answer with commas. Distance, midpoint

asked by Daniel
  1. A. D^2 = (-8-8)^2 + (6-(-6)^2 = 400
    D = 20.

    B. Xo = 0.5(x1+x2) = 0.5(8-8) = 0.
    Yo = 0.5(-6+6) = 0.
