    @ksaimouli Please check your work. I think you misapplied the Midpoint Formula as mentioned by @zhiyuan3yu5

    Let's take a look at the Midpoint Formula. It is attached in a file.

    plug these into the formula that @directrix gave you (4,-3) and (-6,2).

    @lvasquev462 Algebraically, the Midpoint Formula would work as follows: [ ( 4 + (-6) ) / 2 , (-3 + 2) / 2 ] and simplify to get the midpoint coordinates. To help remember the formula, think of it as the average of the x-coordinates and the average of the y-coordinates of the endpoints.
