Answer :

Given: line segment joining the points Q( - 5,4) and R( - 1,0), and also given the mid - point of the line segment i.e.,


To find: the value of ‘a’.


Explanation: As it is given P is the midpoint of line QR, so the coordinates of P are


x - coordinate,



Here x1 = - 5 and x2 = - 1, so the above equation becomes



2a = 3(- 6)


2a =-18


a =-9


Hence the value of a is-9.
