# What is the midpoint between points (7, 8) and (-3, 2)?

Mar 26, 2018

$\left(2 , 5\right)$

#### Explanation:

The midpoint formula tells us that if we have two points $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) , \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) ,$ then the midpoint between the two points is given by $\left(\frac{{x}_{1} + {y}_{1}}{2} , \frac{{x}_{2} + {y}_{2}}{2}\right) .$

Here, $\left({x}_{1} , {y}_{1}\right) = \left(7 , 8\right) , \left({x}_{2} , {y}_{2}\right) = \left(- 3 , 2\right)$

The midpoint is then

$\left(\frac{7 - 3}{2} , \frac{8 + 2}{2}\right)$

$\left(2 , 5\right)$
