- Finding the Midpoint of a Segment
- 00:08
- -Midpoints divide the segment into two equal parts.
- 00:10
- -Use the endpoints to calculate the midpoint.
- 00:13
- -Average the x-values and average the y-values.

- B
- 00:20
- A
- 00:23
- Here, A and B are endpoints.
- 00:26
- M
- 00:28
- M is the midpoint.
- 00:31
- Let's try an example!
- 00:31
- Using points A(–2, –4) and B(4, 8) find the midpoint M.
- 00:33
- First, average the x-values.
- 00:35
- x = (–2 + 4) / 2 = 2 / 2 = 1
- 00:40
- Second, average the y-values.
- 00:42
- y = (–4 + 8) / 2 = 4 / 2 = 2
- 00:45
- The midpoint is M (1, 2).
