distance formula
d√(x1-y1)2+(x2-y2)2

midpoint formula
m=x1+y1/2, x2+y2/2

Ummm, see I don't have my specialized lil calculator either! hehe Okay, let's figure this one on paper...I don't think I like my lovely calculations on paper...not sure if answer is correct.  Thanks Ben for keeping me busy for at least 5 minutes! [:o)]

Carolyn.. You missed these posts from the other page... Lo did correct us and I rechecked mine and found my errors as I was doing it by hand and did not carry and bring down properly! LOL so tested with calculator also... knew Lo was right! LOL!

Carolyn is such a PI! (I don't mean pi) ;-) Here is how you figure out the correct answer(your hint Karen, even I make mistakes which is probably how Carolyn found me out...

Now add 1289 + 34 =1323 -22 = 1301 + 17 = 1318 + 1456 =2774 -839 = 1935  [;D]

1935 is the true answer! 1885 & 1884 is incorrect!  I just thought our little Mathematican would bust me and teach me correctly...  [:P]

Instead we have the forum detective trying to correct me while I waited!  [:P] Glad I am seeing you tomorrow [;D]

Just as I suspected!

Thank God!  I thought I was losing my mind!  Everytime I worked it out I came up with 1935.  Gosh, you had me thinking I was missing something!

Glad I'm seeing you tomorrow too!

This is the original  equation some different then the new one posted! but the same.. I have really messed up adding because I have done it again and indeed it is 1935 LOL!

Very good so far! Now add 1289 + 34 -22 + 17 +1456 -839 hehe
