# How do you find the midpoint of (-1, 3) and (5, 0)?

May 8, 2018

The midpoint is $\left(2 , 1 \frac{1}{2}\right)$

#### Explanation:

To find the midpoint of two points, find the average of the $x$ values and the average of the $y$ values.

The average of $- 1$ and $5$ is $2$,
and the average of $3$ and $0$ is $1 \frac{1}{2}$.

By finding the averages of the points, you are essentially finding the value that is directly in the middle of the two coordinates.
