# How do you find the midpoint between (5,-6), (7,-9)?

Sep 19, 2016

$\left(6 , - \frac{15}{2}\right)$

#### Explanation:

We have: $\left(5 , - 6\right)$ and $\left(7 , - 9\right)$

Let's use the mid-point formula:

$\implies$ Midpoint $= \left(\frac{{x}_{1} + {x}_{2}}{2} , \frac{{y}_{1} + {y}_{2}}{2}\right)$

$\implies$ Midpoint $= \left(\frac{5 + 7}{2} , \frac{\left(- 6\right) + \left(- 9\right)}{2}\right)$

$\implies$ Midpoint $= \left(\frac{12}{2} , - \frac{15}{2}\right)$

$\implies$ Midpoint $= \left(6 , - \frac{15}{2}\right)$
