Midpoint Formula

The midpoint of a line segment with endpoints (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is:

$(\frac{x_1+x_2}{2},\frac{y_1+y_2}{2})$

Find the midpoint of (5,8) and (-3,2)

Using the Midpoint Formula: $(\frac{x_1+x_2}{2},\frac{y_1+y_2}{2})$

$(\frac{5+(-3)}{2},\frac{8+2}{2})$

(1,5)

The midpoint of (5,8) and (-3,2) is (1,5)
