# How do you find the midpoint of (-3, 7) and (4, -5)?

$\left(\frac{1}{2} , 1\right)$

#### Explanation:

I would draw it and look at the numbers halfway between the x and y coordinates.

However if you want to use a formula:

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

$M = \left(\frac{- 3 + 4}{2} , \frac{7 + \left(- 5\right)}{2}\right)$
$= \left(\frac{1}{2} , 1\right)$
