# How do you find the midpoint of (2,6) and (4,8)?

Jul 26, 2018

#### Explanation:

Midpoint Formula :

$\text{If "A(x_1,y_1) and B(x_2,y_2) " are the two point on the line ,}$

$\text{then midpoint M of the line segment " bar(AB) " is :}$

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

Here, $A \left(2 , 6\right) \mathmr{and} B \left(4 , 8\right)$

So, the midpoint of $\overline{A B}$ is:

$M \left(\frac{2 + 4}{2} , \frac{6 + 8}{2}\right) = \left(\frac{6}{2} , \frac{14}{2}\right) = \left(3 , 7\right)$
