Center of line segment

Calculate the distance of the point X [1,3] from the center of the line segment x = 2-6t, y = 1-4t ; t is from interval <0,1>.

Correct answer:

d =  4.4721

Step-by-step explanation:

t=(0+1)/2=21=0.5  x0=26 t=26 0.5=1 y0=14 t=14 0.5=1  x1=1 y1=3 d=(x1x0)2+(y1y0)2=(1(1))2+(3(1))2=2 5=4.4721
