If M(4, q) is the mid-point of the line joining L(p, -2) and N(q, p)….

If M(4, q) is the mid-point of the line joining L(p, -2) and N(q, p). Find the values of p and q
  • A.
    P = 2, q = 4
  • B.
    p = 3, q = 1
  • C.
    p = 5, q = 3
  • D.
    p = 6, q = 2
Correct Answer: Option D
Explanation

(frac{p + q}{2}) = 4
p + q = 8 ….(i)
(frac{p – 2}{2}) = q
p – 2q 2 ….(ii)
q = 2, p = 6
3q = 6
