Midpoint of segment

Point A has coordinates [4; -11] and the midpoint of the segment AB is the point [17; -7]. What are the coordinates of point B?

Correct answer:

Bx =  30
By =  -3

Step-by-step explanation:

A=(4,11) S=(17,7) S=A+B2 2 S=A+B B=2SA  Bx=Bx=2 SxAx=2 174=30
By=By=2 SyAy=2 (7)(11)=3
