# How do you find the midpoint of (-2, -3), (0,0)?

Apr 27, 2016

The midpoint $= \left(- 1 , - 1.5\right)$

#### Explanation:

$\left(- 2 , - 3\right) = \textcolor{b l u e}{{x}_{1} , {y}_{1}}$

$\left(0 , 0\right) = \textcolor{b l u e}{{x}_{2} , {y}_{2}}$

The midpoint is calculated using formula:
Midpoint $= \left(\frac{{x}_{1} + {x}_{2}}{2} , \frac{{y}_{1} + {y}_{2}}{2}\right)$

$= \left(\frac{- 2 + 0}{2} , \frac{- 3 + 0}{2}\right)$

$= \left(- \frac{2}{2} , - \frac{3}{2}\right)$

Midpoint$= \left(- 1 , - 1.5\right)$
