    \[\frac{ x1 + x2 }{ 2 }, \frac{ y1 + y2 }{ 2 }\]

    \[\frac{ 10 + 2x }{ 2 }, \frac{ 22 + 4y }{ 2 }\] now simplify those fractions

    you can look at it like \[\frac{ 10 + 2 }{ 2 }\] then just remember to add the x back in on the top

    no\[ \frac{ 10 + 2x }{ 2 } = \frac{ 10 }{ 2 } + \frac{ 2x }{ 2 }\] same with the other side
