Given the points A(-2,5) and B(4,7)determine the middle point of AB.

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

The mid point between the points (x1, y1) and ( x2, y2) is given by [(x1 + x2)/2 , (y1 + y2)/2]

Here we have the points A(-2 , 5) and B( 4 , 7)

The middle point has the coordinates [( -2+4)/2 , (5+7)/2]

=> ( 2/2 , 12/2)

=> (1 , 6)

The mid point of AB is ( 1 , 6)
