 Question 13424: Show that the point (((a+b)/2),((a+b)/2)) bisects the line segment (a,b) to (b,a), a cannot equal b.Answer by askmemath(368)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!For the point to bisect the line segment it must lie equ-distant from both points. Distance from the point (a,b) = Distance from the point (b,a) = Both distances are equal. Hence the point ((a+b)/2,(a+b)/2) bisects the 2 given points
