# How do you find the midpoint of (-16,-7), (-4,-3)?

$\left(- 10 , - 5\right)$

#### Explanation:

Use the midpoint formula: $\left(\frac{{x}_{1} + {x}_{2}}{2} , \frac{{y}_{1} + {y}_{2}}{2}\right)$

By substituting the $x$ and $y$ values we get the following:

$\frac{\left(- 16\right) + \left(- 4\right)}{2} , \frac{\left(- 7\right) + \left(- 3\right)}{2}$

Then we just evaluate

$\left(- \frac{20}{2} , - \frac{10}{2}\right)$

$\left(- 10 , - 5\right)$
