You have to do (4+x)/2=6 and (2+y)/2=0 then what?Answer by richard1234(5390)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Just solve for x and y. The more intuitive approach is: to get from (6,0) to (4,2) you can subtract 2 from the x-coordinate and add 2 to the y-coordinate. Hence, to find the other point, "reverse" it: add 2 to the x-coordinate and subtract 2 from the y-coordinate to obtain (8,-2).
