Find the midpoint of the line segment joining the points P1 and P2. P1=(5, 3) P2=(-4, 7)

Answer

You need to use the midpoint formula which is as follows- (x1+x2 /2, y1+y2 /2)
so in your problem the two points are 5,3 and -4,7 so let’s plug it in.
5-4/2 , 3+7/2 so do the math and the midpoint comes out to be (1/2, 5)
