Coordinates of the other end point

#### Explanation:

**Assumption : Bisecting line is a perpendicular bisector**

Standard form of equation

Slope of perpendicular bisector **m** is given by

Slope of line segment is

Solving Eqns (1) & (2),

Mid point

Let (x1,y1) the other end point.

Coordinates of other end point
