The horizontal midpoint between the golf ball and the hole is (y1+y2)/2 = (2.5+9.5)/2 = 12/2 = 6. This will be the x-coordinate of the banking point.
Since the "wall" is y=8, the y-coordinate will be 8.
Therefore the banking point is (6,8).
The graph below illustrates this point. (equations found using slope-intercept formula)
