Question 10 The mid point of line segment joining the points (−5, 7) & (−1, 3) is (a) (−3, 7) (b) (−3, 5) (c) (−1, 5) (d) (5, −3) Mid point of (−5, 7) & (−1, 3) = ((𝑥_1 + 𝑥_2)/2, (𝑦_1 + 𝑦_2)/2) = ((−5 + (−1))/2, (7 + 3)/2) = ((−5 − 1)/2, 10/2) = ((−6)/2, 10/2) = (–3, 5) So, (b) is the correct answer
