## uek 2 years ago how do i find the midpoint when p1 to p2 is -1,4 ?

Finding the midpoint is almost like finding the average. You add the absolute value of the two numbers. So 1+4. Now you divide that by 2. Which is 2.5. Now you add that to the smallest side. So your midpoint would be -1+2.5=1.5

$\frac{ x _{1} +x _{2}}{ 2}$ $\frac{ y _{1} +y _{2}}{ 2}$ Just find the average and divide it by two. :)

Just do the average of the endpoints. (-1 + 4)/2 = 3/2 = 1.5
