# How do you find the midpoint of K(-9,3), H(5,7)?

Midpoint $M \left({x}_{m} , {y}_{m}\right) = \left(- 2 , 5\right)$

#### Explanation:

The formulas

${x}_{m} = \frac{{x}_{k} + {x}_{h}}{2} = \frac{- 9 + 5}{2} = - \frac{4}{2} = - 2$

${y}_{m} = \frac{{y}_{k} + {y}_{h}}{2} = \frac{3 + 7}{2} = \frac{10}{2} = 5$

God bless....I hope the explanation is useful.

(-2 ,5)

#### Explanation:

Given 2 coordinate points $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) , \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right)$ then the midpoint is.

color(red)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)color(black)(1/2(x_1+x_2),1/2(y_1+y_2)color(white)(a/a)|)))

here the 2 points are K(-9 ,3) and H(5 ,7)

Thus the midpoint of KH = $\left(\frac{1}{2} \left(- 9 + 5\right) , \frac{1}{2} \left(3 + 7\right)\right) = \left(- 2 , 5\right)$
