Midpoint formula: \[M = \left( \frac{ x₂-x₁ }{ 2 }, \frac{ y₂-y₁ }{ 2 } \right)\]

what did you get when you solved? i didnt get it

So you have your 2 points, (x₁,y₁) and (x₂,y₂), or in this problem (16,5) and (28,-13) x₁ = 16 x₂ = 28 y₁ = 5 y₂ = -13 Just plug those values into the midpoint formula and you'll get the point M
