Section 1.3 Use Midpoint and Distance FormulasThe midpointof a segment is the point that divides the segment into two congruent segments.A segment bisectoris a point, ray, line, line segment, or plane that intersects the segment at its midpoint.A midpoint or segment bisector “bisects” a segmentThe midpoint of AB is M(5, 8).One cooridnate is A(2, -3). Find thecoordinates of endpoint Bis the midpoint of AB So, AMand AMMMBMB2245=

Example: The figure shows a gate with diagonal braces.MO bisects NP at Q. If PQ = 22.6 in, find PNExample: Point Mis the midpoint of VW. Find the length of VM
Example:In Exercises 1and 2, identify the segment bisectorof PQ . Then find PQ.1.Point M is the midpoint of AB.Find MB
The Midpoint FormulaThe coordinates of the midpoint of a segment are the averages of the x-coordinates and the
