# How do you find the midpoint of the line segment joining (4,-5) and (-7,8)?

Apr 28, 2017

Mid point $\to \left(x , y\right) = \left(- \frac{3}{2} , + \frac{3}{2}\right)$

#### Explanation:

Mid point is the mean values

For $x$ the mid point is $\frac{4 - 7}{2} = - \frac{3}{2}$

For $y$ the mid point is $\frac{8 - 5}{2} = + \frac{3}{2}$

So mid point $\to \left(x , y\right) = \left(- \frac{3}{2} , + \frac{3}{2}\right)$
