    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
