# What is the midpoint between (8,5) and (2, -2)?

Dec 12, 2016

$\text{the midpoint between (8,5) and (2,-2) is P(5,1.5)}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the mid point between A"(x_1,y_1)" and " B(x_2,y_2)" can be calculated by}$

$P \left(\frac{{x}_{1} + {x}_{2}}{2} , \frac{{y}_{1} + {y}_{2}}{2}\right)$

$P \left(\frac{8 + 2}{2} , \frac{5 - 2}{2}\right)$

$P \left(\frac{10}{2} , \frac{3}{2}\right)$

$P \left(5 , 1.5\right)$
