    Endpoints

    The line segment joining A(2,4) and B(-3,-5) is extended through each end by a distance equal to twice its original length. Find the coordinates of the new endpoints.

    Please help me... And show the solution... Thanks!

    The horizontal distance of this segment is 5 units and the vertical distance is 9 units.

    So double the horizontal and vertical distances and add them in both directions.
