# What is the midpoint of a segment whose endpoints are (14, -7) and (6, -7)?

(10, -7)

#### Explanation:

Let the mid point is (x, y).

If the ends points are (x1,y1), (x2,y2), then midpoint will be

$x = \frac{x 1 + x 2}{2} \mathmr{and} y = \frac{y 1 + y 2}{2}$

here,$x = \frac{14 + 6}{2} = \frac{20}{2} = 10$

and $y = \frac{\left(- 7\right) + \left(- 7\right)}{2} = - \frac{14}{2} = - 7$

the point is (x , y) = (10 , -7)
