In the figure below, M is the midpoint of segment RS. What is the area of ∆MOP ?
A.) 4.5
B.) 4 C.) 3.5 D.) 3 E.) 2√2
If M is the midpoint of segment RS, then M has coordinates of (3,3).
Therefore,  segment OP measures 3 units and  segment MP measures 3 units base x height  = area of a triangle 2 ∆MOP has a base of 3 and a height of 3 3 x 3  = area of ∆MOP {substituted base and height into area formula} 2 = 9/2 {multiplied in numerator} = 4.5 {divided} Area of ∆MOP = 4.5 A.) 4.5 Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
