Question: 465

6. In the coordinate plane, what is the midpoint of the line segment with endpoints at (3, 4) and (0, 0) ?

A. (1.5, 2)
B. (5, 0)
C. (2.5, 0)
D. (3.5, 3.5)
E. (1.75, 1.75)

Correct Answer: A

Explanation:

A Use the midpoint formula : Take the average of the x-coordinates of the two points to get the x-coordinate of the midpoint, and do the same for the y-coordinates. The midpoint between (3, 4) and (0, 0) is therefore = (1.5, 2).
