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?

Result

x =  20
y =  1

Solution:

M=A+B2 2M=A+B B=2MA  x=22(16)=20M = \dfrac{ A+ B}{2} \ \\ 2 M = A+B \ \\ B = 2M - A \ \\ \ \\ x = 2\cdot 2-(-16) = 20
y=21223=1y = 2\cdot 12-23 = 1



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
