Midpoint Of A Line Segment: positive And Negative Slopes

Directions: Using the integers -9 to 9 at most one time each, place a digit in each box to create endpoints for two different line segments whose midpoint is (1, 3). One line segment should have a positive slope and the other should have a negative slope. You may reuse all the integers for each line segment. Source: Robert Kaplinsky …
