Hi Selena;
(3,5) and (2,2)
The mid-point between the x-values is...
(x+x1)/2
(3+2)/2
5/2
2.5
The mid-point between the y-values is...
(y+y1)/2
(5+2)/2
7/2
3.5
The mid-point coordinate is...
(2.5, 3.5)
Use the expression (x1+x2/2, y1+y2/2) to get the x and y coordinates of the midpoint. So add up the x values and divide by 2 to get x at the midpoint, and add up the y values and divide by 2 to get y at the midpoint.
