The midpoint of $W T = \left(- 10 , 5\right)$

#### Explanation:

The equation for the Midpoint is $\frac{{x}_{1} + {x}_{2}}{2} , \frac{{y}_{1} + {y}_{2}}{2}$

For the points $W \left(- 12 , 6\right) \mathmr{and} T \left(- 8 , 4\right)$

${x}_{1} = - 12$
${x}_{2} = - 8$
${y}_{1} = 6$
${y}_{2} = 4$

$\frac{- 12 + \left(- 8\right)}{2} , \frac{6 + 4}{2}$

$\frac{- 20}{2} , \frac{10}{2}$

$- 10 , 5$

The midpoint of $W T = \left(- 10 , 5\right)$
