00:00:00.540 --> 00:00:02.060 A:middle L:90%
Okay. Hey, guys. We're back today to
2
00:00:02.060 --> 00:00:04.980 A:middle L:90%
talk about the midpoint formula, Another very super duper
3
00:00:04.980 --> 00:00:08.529 A:middle L:90%
common formula that you see along with the distance formula
4
00:00:08.529 --> 00:00:12.150 A:middle L:90%
and things that fall under the category of coordinate geometry
5
00:00:13.039 --> 00:00:15.789 A:middle L:90%
. So the midpoint formula is exactly what it says
6
00:00:15.800 --> 00:00:17.420 A:middle L:90%
. It's a formula to help us figure out the
7
00:00:17.420 --> 00:00:20.579 A:middle L:90%
midpoint of a given line segment. Okay, so
8
00:00:20.850 --> 00:00:25.579 A:middle L:90%
suppose you have again on the coordinate grid to random
9
00:00:25.579 --> 00:00:32.299 A:middle L:90%
points. I'm gonna call this point A and its
10
00:00:32.299 --> 00:00:36.579 A:middle L:90%
coordinates are X one comma Y one, and then
11
00:00:36.579 --> 00:00:40.179 A:middle L:90%
I have some other point b. I'm gonna call
12
00:00:40.189 --> 00:00:46.090 A:middle L:90%
its coordinates X two comma. Why to Well,
13
00:00:46.100 --> 00:00:49.340 A:middle L:90%
I'm looking for the midpoint of this segment, which
14
00:00:49.340 --> 00:00:55.600 A:middle L:90%
is gonna be somewhere in here. And I want
15
00:00:55.600 --> 00:00:59.700 A:middle L:90%
you to think that the midpoint is in the middle
16
00:01:02.140 --> 00:01:04.730 A:middle L:90%
of both your X coordinates and your white coordinates.
17
00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:07.890 A:middle L:90%
Its's in the middle of this distance, but it's
18
00:01:07.890 --> 00:01:11.900 A:middle L:90%
also in the middle of this distance. So if
19
00:01:11.900 --> 00:01:15.890 A:middle L:90%
you think about how do you find the middle of
20
00:01:15.890 --> 00:01:22.170 A:middle L:90%
two values That's really the average. So to find
21
00:01:22.170 --> 00:01:26.469 A:middle L:90%
the x coordinate of this midpoint, I'm gonna take
22
00:01:26.480 --> 00:01:30.890 A:middle L:90%
my two X coordinates individually, and I'm gonna find
23
00:01:30.890 --> 00:01:34.349 A:middle L:90%
their average. Likewise, we do the same with
24
00:01:34.620 --> 00:01:42.819 A:middle L:90%
the Y coordinates, and that is your mid port
25
00:01:42.909 --> 00:01:46.340 A:middle L:90%
midpoint formula. It's literally just the average of your
26
00:01:46.340 --> 00:01:49.609 A:middle L:90%
X and Y coordinates, respectively. I'll be back
27
00:01:49.609 --> 00:01:51.760 A:middle L:90%
later with more examples.
