Midpoint of segment

Point A has coordinates [-16; 23] and the midpoint of the segment AB is the point [2; 12]. What are the coordinates of point B?

Correct result:

x =  20
y =  1

Solution:

M=A+B2 2M=A+B B=2MA  x=22(16)=20
y=21223=1



We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you!
