You can put this solution on YOUR website!

To find the midpoint, first we need to find the individual coordinates of the midpoint.

#### X-Coordinate of the Midpoint:

To find the x-coordinate of the midpoint, simply average the two x-coordinates of the given points by adding them up and dividing that result by 2 like this:

So the x-coordinate of the midpoint is

-----------------------------------------------------

#### Y-Coordinate of the Midpoint:

To find the y-coordinate of the midpoint, simply average the two y-coordinates of the given points by adding them up and dividing that result by 2 like this:

So the y-coordinate of the midpoint is

So the midpoint between the points and is

Probability-and-statistics/339167: A die is rolled twice. What is the probability of getting a sum greater than or equal to ten?
I was thinking that it would be 1/12, Can someone please let me know if this is correct? Thank you:)
1 solutions

Answer 243091 by jim_thompson5910(28696)   on 2010-09-05 17:00:30 (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website!
Make a table detailing ALL the possible ways to roll two dice and their corresponding sum

123456
1234567
2345678
3456789
45678910
567891011
6789101112

Note: Each cell (not in bold) is the sum of the corresponding number in the first row and the first column (shown in bold). Ex: Say you roll a 6 and a 3. So you could choose the sixth row and intersect that with the 3rd column (or vice versa) to get 6+3=9

From the table, we can clearly see all the possible outcomes (there are 6*6=36 outcomes). Also, we can see from the table that there are 5 ways to roll a 10 or more (shown in red). So the probability is which is roughly 0.13889 (which is a 13.889% chance)

If so, then... Looking at we can see that the equation is in slope-intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is Since this tells us that the y-intercept is .Remember the y-intercept is the point where the graph intersects with the y-axis So we have one point Now since the slope is comprised of the "rise" over the "run" this means Also, because the slope is , this means: which shows us that the rise is -2 and the run is 3. This means that to go from point to point, we can go down 2 and over 3 So starting at , go down 2 units and to the right 3 units to get to the next point Now draw a line through these points to graph So this is the graph of through the points and If you need more help, email me at jim_thompson5910@hotmail.com Also, feel free to check out my tutoring website.

 Graphs/339012: write an equation perpendicular to 2x - y = 1 going through (3,5) and graph1 solutions Answer 243005 by jim_thompson5910(28696)   on 2010-09-05 00:07:37 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given equation. Subtract from both sides. Rearrange the terms. Divide both sides by to isolate y. Break up the fraction. Reduce. We can see that the equation has a slope and a y-intercept . Now to find the slope of the perpendicular line, simply flip the slope to get . Now change the sign to get . So the perpendicular slope is . Now let's use the point slope formula to find the equation of the perpendicular line by plugging in the slope and the coordinates of the given point . Start with the point slope formula Plug in , , and Distribute Multiply Add 5 to both sides. Combine like terms. note: If you need help with fractions, check out this solver. So the equation of the line perpendicular to that goes through the point is . Here's a graph to visually verify our answer: Graph of the original equation (red) and the perpendicular line (green) through the point .

 Linear-equations/339008: I need a refresher on how to do these types of problems. You dont have to show me the exact answer just maybe an example of a similar problem. 1. Write an equation parallel to 3x + 6y = -12 going through (4,-2) and graph. 2. Write an equation going through (3,5) and graph.1 solutions Answer 243001 by jim_thompson5910(28696)   on 2010-09-04 23:37:13 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I'll do the first one to get you started. Please only post one problem at a time. Thanks. Start with the given equation. Subtract from both sides. Rearrange the terms. Divide both sides by to isolate y. Break up the fraction. Reduce. We can see that the equation has a slope and a y-intercept . Since parallel lines have equal slopes, this means that we know that the slope of the unknown parallel line is . Now let's use the point slope formula to find the equation of the parallel line by plugging in the slope and the coordinates of the given point . Start with the point slope formula Plug in , , and Rewrite as Distribute Multiply Subtract 2 from both sides. Combine like terms. Remove the trailing zero So the equation of the line parallel to that goes through the point is .
