$\left(1 , \frac{11}{2}\right)$

#### Explanation:

$\text{The coordinates of the midpoint are the average of the}$
$\text{coordinates of the endpoints}$

$\text{midpoint } = \left[\frac{1}{2} \left(- 1 + 3\right) , \frac{1}{2} \left(5 + 6\right)\right]$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{midpoint }} = \left[\frac{1}{2} \left(2\right) , \frac{1}{2} \left(11\right)\right] = \left(1 , \frac{11}{2}\right)$
