Set

Find the coordinates of the midpoint of each line segment provided. If multiple line segments are given, then give the midpoints of all segments.

13.

Line segment on a graph with endpoints (1,6) and (9,2). x555101010y555000

14.

Line segment on a graph with endpoints (-2,1) and (6,3). x555y555000

15.

Triangle with vertices (6,-4), (10,-4) and (6,3). x555101010y–5–5–5555000

16.

Triangle with vertices (-1,5), (4,5) and (4,-2). x555y555000

17.

A line segment between and .

18.

A line segment between and .

19.

Triangle with vertices B(-2,4), D(-2,-2) and C(7,-2) and point A on the triangle at (-2,2). x555y000DDDCCCBBBAAA

If a line is drawn parallel to and through point , at what coordinate will the intersection of this parallel line be with ?

20.

Triangle with vertices B(7,9), D(2,-1) and C(7,-1) and point E on the triangle at (7,4). x555101010y555101010000DDDCCCBBBEEE

If a line is drawn parallel to and through point , at what coordinate will the intersection of this parallel line be with ?

21.

Triangle with vertices B(-4,1), D(-4,4) and C(5,4) and point F on the triangle at (-4,3). x–5–5–5555y555000BBBDDDCCCFFF

If a line is drawn parallel to and through point , at what coordinate will the intersection of this parallel line be with ?

22.

Triangle with vertices B(5,-1), D(-5,4) and C(5,4) and point G on the triangle at (1,4). x–5–5–5555y555000BBBCCCDDDGGG

If a line is drawn parallel to and through point , at what coordinate will the intersection of this parallel line be with ?

23.

When a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle so that it intersects the other two sides of the triangle, how do the measures of the parts of the two intersected sides compare? Explain.

24.

In problems 19–22, you were given right triangles. Could a determination of the coordinates be made if they were not right triangles? Why or why not?
