# How do you find the midpoint of the line segment joining N(5,4), P(6,3) ?

Jun 7, 2016

$M \left(5 \frac{1}{2} , 3 \frac{1}{2}\right)$

#### Explanation:

Simply find the average of the x-values and the average of the y-values. I.e. add them together and divide by 2.

As the midpoint formula this is given as
$\left(\frac{{x}_{1} + {x}_{2}}{2} , \frac{{y}_{1} + {y}_{2}}{2}\right)$

$\left(\frac{5 + 6}{2} , \frac{4 + 3}{2}\right)$

$M \left(5 \frac{1}{2} , 3 \frac{1}{2}\right)$
