$\left(4 , 3\right)$

#### Explanation:

The midpoint of 2 points $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) \text{ and } \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$ is the $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{average}}$ of the x and y coordinates.

$\text{That is } \textcolor{red}{\overline{\underline{| \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{\left[\frac{1}{2} \left({x}_{1} + {x}_{2}\right) , \frac{1}{2} \left({y}_{1} + {y}_{2}\right)\right]} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} |}}}$

$\text{here " (x_1,y_1)=(2,7)" and } \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(6 , - 1\right)$

$\text{midpoint } = \left[\frac{1}{2} \left(2 + 6\right) , \frac{1}{2} \left(7 - 1\right)\right] = \left(4 , 3\right)$
