# Math Help - Find Value of y

1. ## Find Value of y

The coordinates of the midpoint of line segment AB are (2,-5). If the coordinates of A are ( 6, y) and the coordinates of B are (-2,-3), then find the value of y.

2. the value of Y is -7....

midpoint formula (x , y) = ((x1+x2)/2), (y1+y2)/2)

therefore y = -5 = (y+(-3))/2
y-3=-10
then y = -7...

is it correct....
