# How do you find the midpoint of A is (0,0) and point B is (12,6)?

Jul 6, 2016

The mid point of $\left({a}_{1} , {a}_{2}\right)$ and $\left({b}_{1} , {b}_{2}\right)$ is given by the formula $\left(\frac{{a}_{1} + {b}_{1}}{2} , \frac{{a}_{2} + {b}_{2}}{2}\right)$

#### Explanation:

We calculate then:

$\frac{0 + 12}{2} = 6$ for the first coordinate, and

$\frac{0 + 6}{2} = 3$ for the second coordinate. Thus, the midpoint is:

$\left(6 , 3\right)$
