8-30.

If

is the midpoint of,is the midpoint of, andis the midpoint of, find the coordinates of.When finding the midpoint remember to calculate the average of the

-coordinates and the average of the-coordinates for the two points.What fraction of the distance from

tois?Draw a slope triangle for

and a slope triangle for, then compare their side lengths.Use the ratio from part (b) to find the coordinates of point

.
