A has coordinates (x1,x2) B (x2,y2) M (x1+x2/2 , y1+y2/2) use the distance formula to show that AM= 1/2 AB I tried to solve it but I got sqrt5 for both AM and AB Please show me how to do it step by step. Thank you!Answer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A has coordinates (x1,y1) B (x2,y2) M (x1+x2/2 , y1+y2/2) use the distance formula to show that AM= 1/2 AB A (x1,x2) B (x2,y2) M (x1+x2/2 , y1+y2/2) ... AM = sqrt (x1-(x1+x2)/2)^2+(y1-(y1+y2)/2)^2) AM = sqrt((x1-x2)^2+(y1-y2)^2 ... AB= ... AM = .. AM = 1/2* ... substitute sqrt((x1-x2)^2+(y1-y2)^2) with AB AM=1/2*AB ... m.ananth@hotmail.ca
