Distance and midpoint

Find the distance between each pair of points. If necessary round answers to two decimal places.

(2 square root of 3, square root 6) and (- square root of 3, 5 square root of 6)

___________________

Find the midpoint of each line segment with the given endpoints.

(-4, -7) and (1, -3)

Solution Preview

The distance between two points (x,y) and (u,v)

is given by Pythagoras theorem:

d = sqrt [(x-u)^2 + (y-v)^2]

In our case:

x = 2sqrt(3)
u = ...
