length: 9.055

midpoint coordinates: (1.5, 3.5)

#### Explanation:

Segment AB forms the hypotenuse of a right triangle with legs equal to:

(you can plot the two points on graph paper and confirm this)

So, the length of the legs are 9 and -1. Fall back on your old pal Pythagoras to find the length:

To find the midpoint, simply divide the length of the legs and add that to coordinates of the leftmost point.
