## midpoint

In geometry, the midpoint is the middle point of a line segment. It is equidistant from both endpoints, and it is the centroid both of the segment and of the endpoints. It bisects the segment.

## How do u find the midpoint?

You can find the midpoint of a line segment given 2 endpoints, (x

_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}).**Add each x-coordinate and divide by 2 to find x of the midpoint.****Add each y-coordinate and divide by 2 to find y of the midpoint**. It’s important to note that a midpoint is the middle point on a line segment.## What is midpoint and example?

**The point of intersection of the line connecting the cusps and the segment is the midpoint of the segment**. Here’s an example to find the coordinate of an endpoint, given the midpoint and the coordinates of the other endpoint. Example: Midpoint R between the points P and Q has the coordinates (4, 6).

## What is the purpose of midpoint?

The midpoint formula is applied when one is required

**to find the exact center point between two defined points**. So for a line segment, use this formula to calculate the point that bisects a line segment defined by the two points.## What is the midpoint of FB?

Midpoint of FB =

**3**.

## How is midpoint used in real life?

The midpoint formula is essential in many real life situations. For example,

**you want to cut a stick in half but you don’t have any measuring devices**. In this situation, you can still cut the stick in half by placing the stick on the graphing paper and determine the coordinates of its ends.## Does a ray have a midpoint?

A line midpoint can only be found in a line segment.

**A line or ray cannot have a midpoint**as the line is indefinite and can be extended indefinitely in both directions whereas a ray has only one end.## What is midpoint postulate?

Segment Midpoint Postulate

**Any line segment will have exactly one midpoint**no more, and no less.

## What is the midpoint of a circle called?

Answer: the midpoint of circle is called ‘

**centre of the circle**‘.## Which is the endpoint of a ray?

**Point A**is the ray’s endpoint. One way to think of a ray is a line with one end. A ray starts at a given point and goes off in a certain direction forever, to infinity. The point where the ray starts is called (confusingly) the endpoint.

## What is the measure of angle TRV?

angle TRV = 2x+10= 2 60 + 10 = 120 +10 = 130. So the answer is

**130**.## In what real world situations would you want to use the distance formula and the midpoint formula?

The distance and midpoint formula are useful in

**geometry situations**where we want to find the distance between two points or the point halfway between two points.
