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.

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).
