5. The Distance Formula
There are two different types of problems to solve withe
the distance formula.
A. All four of the coordinates are known. Solve for the
distance.
B. Three of four coordinates and the distance is known.
Solve for the fourth coordinate.
6. Example 1. Find the distance between the two points.
(-2,5) and (3,-1)
• Let (x1,y1) = (-2,5) and (x2,y2) = (3,-1)
A. All four of the coordinates are known. Solve for the distance.
7. Example 2.
8. B. Three of four coordinates and the distance is known.
Solve for the fourth coordinate.
9. B. Three of four coordinates and the distance is known.
Solve for the fourth coordinate.
10. MIDPOINT
The midpoint of a segment is half way
between the x’s and half way between the y’s
You can call it the average

Midpoint
11. To find the midpoint
of the line along the x
axis..
Add the |beginning
coordinate| and the
|ending coordinate|,
then ÷ 2
To find the midpoint
of the line along the y
axis, find the ‘average’
y value
The average y value of
the line segment is...
The mid-point is at
(0,5)
What are the x
coordinates of the end
points of the line
segment?
The average x value of
the line segment is...
What are the y
coordinates of the end
points of the line
segment?
The mid-point
coordinates are.. (1,0)
The mid-point
coordinates are...

= YMID
What If We Knew The Midpoint Of A Segment And One
Endpoint? How Would We Find The Other Endpoint?
Think Of The Formula As:
Midpoint
( Xmid , Ymid )( X1 , Y1 ) ( X2 , Y2 )
Endpoints
