    First: Use the midpoint formula to find M and N. \(\huge (\frac{ x_2+x_1}{ 2 },\frac{ y_2+y_1 }{ 2 })\)

    M is the midpoint of A and B, and A (1, 5) & B (9, 7). x1 y1 x2 y2

    Once you found the points of M and N, use the distance formula to find the length of MN. DISTANCE FORMULA: \[\huge \sqrt{(x_2 - x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}\]
