Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

The formula to find the mid-point of a line segment give the two end points is:

#M = ((color(red)(x_1) + color(blue)(x_2))/2 , (color(red)(y_1) + color(blue)(y_2))/2)#

Where #M# is the midpoint and the given points are:

#color(red)((x_1, y_1))# and #color(blue)((x_2, y_2))#

Substituting the values from the problem gives:

#M = ((color(red)(2) + color(blue)(6))/2 , (color(red)(2) + color(blue)(4))/2) = (8/2, 6/2) = (4, 3)#
