The coordinates of the mid point of the line segment joining two points A(x1, y1) and B(x2, y2) are `((x1+x2)/2, (y1+y2)/2)` .

Here the coordinates of T are (8, -3) and the coordinates of R are (-6, 8)

The coordinates of the mid point of TR are `((8-6)/2, (-3+8)/2) = (1, 2.5)`

The coordinates of the mid point of TR are: (1, 2.5)
