1. Find the midpoint of the segment joining (-4/3, 2/5) and (-8, 8/3).
2. Solution

$$\displaystyle \left( - \frac{14}{3}, \frac{23}{15} \right)$$

3. The midpoint of the segment AB is (k, k + 5). The coordinates of point B are (k/2, k - 1). Find the coordinates of point A.
4. Solution

$$( \displaystyle \frac{3k}{2}, k + 11)$$

5. Find all points P(x, y) that are 5 away from the point (3, -1) and 13 away from the point (-6, 8).
6. Solution

$$(-1, -4)$$ and $$(6, 3)$$
