Learning Target I CAN find the distance between two points and the midpoint of a segment. Then/Now

Distance - the length of the segment between two endpoints.
Concept

Use the number line to find QR.
Find Distance on a Number Line Use the number line to find QR. The coordinates of Q and R are –6 and –3. QR = | –6 – (–3) | Distance Formula = | –3 | or 3 Simplify. Answer: 3 Example 1

Find Midpoint on a Number Line
DECORATING Marco places a couch so that its end is perpendicular and 2.5 feet away from the wall. The couch is 90” wide. How far is the midpoint of the couch back from the wall in feet? First we must convert 90 inches to 7.5 feet. The coordinates of the endpoints of the couch are 2.5 and 10. Let M be the midpoint of the couch. Midpoint Formula x1 = 2.5, x2 = 10 Example 3

Answer: The midpoint of the couch back is 6.25 feet from the wall.
Find Midpoint on a Number Line Simplify. Answer: The midpoint of the couch back is 6.25 feet from the wall. Example 3

Segment Bisector – a segment, line, or plane that intersects a segment at its midpoint.
In the diagram, M is the midpoint of segment PQ, so segment JM, line KM, and plane A are all segment bisectors of segment PQ.

Use Algebra to Find Measures
Understand You know that Q is the midpoint of PR, and the figure gives algebraic measures for QR and PR. You are asked to find the measure of PR. Example 6

Plan Because Q is the midpoint, you know that
Use Algebra to Find Measures Plan Because Q is the midpoint, you know that Use this equation and the algebraic measures to find a value for x. Solve Subtract 1 from each side. Example 6

Use Algebra to Find Measures
