[00:00:00] The coordinates of point T are given. The midpoint of ST is (5,-8). Find the coordinates of point S.

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:00:15] Welcome to tutor.com:) My name is Mr. K, and I look forward to helping you today:)
[00:00:23] i hope you are doing well today:)
[00:00:34] what are the coordinates of T?

Guest (Customer)
[00:00:52] oh oops lol (0,4)

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:01:07] :)
[00:01:21] great... do you have an ide ahow to begin this one?

Guest (Customer)
[00:01:37] yes i do, would you like me to draw it on the white board?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:01:54] sure:)

Guest (Customer)
[00:02:03] ok :)
[00:03:01] like that?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:03:25] yes, thsat is great...
[00:03:36] now, what do you do to solve for x and y?

Guest (Customer)
[00:03:54] multiply?
[00:03:57] or divide?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:04:22] you woudl need to multiply first...

Guest (Customer)
[00:04:40] ok so i would multiply the 5 to both sides?
[00:05:04] of the equation?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:05:09] not quite..
[00:05:27] you want to multiply both sides by the denominator.

Guest (Customer)
[00:05:47] so multiply 5 to the denominator and itself?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:06:31] you need to get rid of the denominator so you

Guest (Customer)
[00:06:25] or would i have to multiply the denominator to bothsides?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:06:42] would want to multiply both sides by 2 in order to move it.
[00:07:18] does that make sense?

Guest (Customer)
[00:07:29] ohhh i get it!

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:07:46] exclelent:)

Guest (Customer)
[00:07:45] do u want me to the the other equation?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:07:53] yes:)

Guest (Customer)
[00:08:40] ohhh ok and then we have to add the 0 to oth sides or the 10?
[00:08:58] or subtract i mean?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:09:38] you would subtract it from both sides, but keep in mind that when you subtract zero, nothing would change.
[00:09:50] and yes the y is -12. Great job.

Guest (Customer)
[00:10:19] ohhh ok and so (10,-12) are the coorinates for the final answer?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:10:31] yes, that is correct.

Guest (Customer)
[00:10:58] oh ok, can i do another coorinate just so i get the idea?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:11:17] that would be great...

Guest (Customer)
[00:11:25] ok
[00:14:39] is that correct?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:15:10] yes, you got it.. Grea tjob.

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:16:00] It was my pleasure to help you today:)

Guest (Customer)
[00:16:06] Nope I don't think so but if i get a problem like that, i always need to subtract the denominator from both sides or i mean multiply?

Tim K (Tutor)
[00:16:34] yes:)
