# How do you find the midpoint of ( -3, 2 ) and ( 9, 8 )?

May 15, 2016

The midpoint $= \left(3 , 5\right)$

#### Explanation:

(-3,2) = color(blue)(x_1 , y_1

(9,8) = color(blue)(x_2 , y_2

The midpoint $= \textcolor{b l u e}{\frac{{x}_{1} + {x}_{2}}{2} , \frac{{y}_{1} + {y}_{2}}{2}}$

$= \left(\frac{- 3 + 9}{2} , \frac{2 + 8}{2}\right)$

$= \left(\frac{6}{2} , \frac{10}{2}\right)$

$= \left(3 , 5\right)$
