# How do you find the midpoint of (2,6) and (8,10)?

Apr 23, 2016

#### Explanation:

Let us suppose that the coordinates of the midpoints be ( $x , y$)

So,

Supposing (2,6) = (${x}_{1} , {y}_{1}$)

And,

(8,10) = (${x}_{2} , {y}_{2}$)

Then,

BY the Formula for midpoint

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

Putting the respective values we get
x= 5 and y =8
