# How do you find the midpoint of (0,2) and (-2,1)?

Mar 11, 2016

You take the midpoint of the $x$'s and the $y$'s

#### Explanation:

$x$'s
the midpoint between $0$ and $- 2$ is $\frac{0 + - 2}{2} = - 1$

$y$'s
The midpoint between $2$ and $1$ is $\frac{2 + 1}{2} = 1 \frac{1}{2}$

So the midpoint between the two is $\left(- 1 , 1 \frac{1}{2}\right)$
