The mid point $= \left(9. - 1\right)$

#### Explanation:

The coordinates are:
A(8,3) = color(blue)(x_1,y_1

B(10,-5) = color(blue)(x_2,y_2

The mid point is calculated using formula:
$\frac{{x}_{1} + {x}_{2}}{2} , \frac{{y}_{1} + {y}_{2}}{2}$

$= \frac{8 + 10}{2} , \frac{3 + \left(- 5\right)}{2}$

$= \frac{18}{2} , \frac{- 2}{2}$

$= \left(9. - 1\right)$
