How do you find the midpoint of F(5,8) E(4,3)?

Jan 8, 2017

You use the Midpoint Formula to solve this problem.

Explanation:

To solve this problem, you need to use the Midpoint Formula:

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

Now, let's put in the numbers from the problem:

$m = \left(\frac{5 + 4}{2} , \frac{8 + 3}{2}\right)$

Which then simplifies into:

$m = \left(\frac{9}{2} , \frac{11}{2}\right)$

$m = \left(4.5 , 5.5\right)$
