#### Explanation:

Given 2 coordinate points

# (x_1.y_1)" and " (x_2,y_2)# then the midpoint is found using#color(blue)"midpoint formula"#

#color(red)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)color(black)(1/2(x_1+x_2),1/2(y_1+y_2))color(white)(a/a)|)))# The 2 points here are (-24 ,2) and (23 ,-25)

midpoint =

#[1/2(-24+23),1/2(2-25)]=(-1/2,-23/2)#
