# How do you find the midpoint of L(4,2) and P(0,2)?

Feb 29, 2016

Mid point$\text{ "->" "(x,y)" "->" } \left(2 , 2\right)$

#### Explanation:

You need the mean values (average)

The given points are of the format $\left(x , y\right)$

Mean $x = \frac{4 + 0}{2} = 2$

Mean $y = \frac{2 + 2}{2} = 2$

As the y value is the same it indicates that both these points lie on a line parallel to the x-axis

Mid point$\text{ "->" "(x,y)" "->" } \left(2 , 2\right)$
