# The North Campground (3,5) is midway between the North Point Overlook (1,y) and the Waterfall (x,1). How do I use the Midpoint Formula to find the values of x and y and justify each step? Please show steps.

Use the midpoint formula ...

#### Explanation:

Since the point (3,5) is the midpoint ...

$3 = \frac{1 + x}{2}$ or $x = 5$

$5 = \frac{y + 1}{2}$ or $y = 9$

hope that helped
