How do you find the midpoint of (4, 3) and (10,-7)?

The midpoint $= \left(7 , - 2\right)$

Explanation:

 (4,3) = color(blue)(x_1 , y_1
 ( 10 , -7 )= color(blue)(x_2 , y_2

The midpoint is calculated using formula:
Midpoint $= \left(\frac{{x}_{1} + {x}_{2}}{2} , \frac{{y}_{1} + {y}_{2}}{2}\right)$

$= \left(\frac{4 + 10}{2} , \frac{3 + \left(- 7\right)}{2}\right)$

$= \left(\frac{14}{2} , - \frac{4}{2}\right)$

$= \left(7 , - 2\right)$
