# How do you find the midpoint of (-1,4) to (3,2)?

May 28, 2018

The midpoint is at $\left(1 , 3\right)$.

#### Explanation:

The midpoint formula is shown here:

We are given the two endpoints, so we can plug it into the formula to find the midpoint. Notice that the formula is same as the average of the two x-values and y-values.

$\text{Midpoint} = \left(\frac{- 1 + 3}{2} , \frac{4 + 2}{2}\right)$

$\quad \quad \quad \quad \quad \quad \quad \quad = \left(\frac{2}{2} , \frac{6}{2}\right)$

$\quad \quad \quad \quad \quad \quad \quad \quad = \left(1 , 3\right)$

Hope this helps!
