# How do you find the midpoint of (5,6) & (4,9)?

Jun 6, 2016

The midpoint is

$\left(5.5 , 6.5\right)$

#### Explanation:

The Midpoint Formula is

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

For the points (5,6) & (4,9)

${x}_{1} = 5$
${x}_{2} = 6$
${y}_{1} = 4$
${y}_{2} = 9$

$\left(\frac{5 + 6}{2} , \frac{4 + 9}{2}\right)$

$\left(\frac{11}{2} , \frac{13}{2}\right)$

The midpoint is

$\left(5.5 , 6.5\right)$
