$\left(\frac{7}{2} , 4\right)$

#### Explanation:

Midpoint of two points $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right)$ and $\left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$ is given by

$\left(\frac{{x}_{1} + {x}_{2}}{2} , \frac{{y}_{1} + {y}_{2}}{2}\right)$

Hence, midpoint of $\left(2 , 2\right)$ and $\left(5 , 6\right)$ is given by

$\left(\frac{2 + 5}{2} , \frac{2 + 6}{2}\right)$ or $\left(\frac{7}{2} , 4\right)$
