Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need a point, so it will be in the form (x,y). You need to find the midpoint for the x values first (2+4) / 2 = x then for the y values (3+1) / 2 = y and then your answer is (x,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use (1996, $500,000) as one point, and (1998, $720,000) as the other point. To find the midpoint of two points, find the average of the xvalues and the average of the yvalues. For example, what is the midpoint of (1, 2) and (5, 6)? ( (1 + 5)/2, (2 + 6)/2 ) = (3, 4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x1=1997,x2=1998 y1=500,000,y2=720000 midpoint =(1996+1998/2 , 500,000+720000/2)=(1997,610000) midpoint=(1997,610000)
