Q:
# line segment AB has endpoints A(1,-3) and B(-2,1). What is the midpoint of line segment AB

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:[tex]\large\boxed{\left(-\dfrac{1}{2},\ -1\right)}[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:[tex]\text{The formula of a midpoint:}\\\\\left(\dfrac{x_1+x_2}{2};\ \dfrac{y_1+y_2}{2}\right)\\\\================================\\\\A(1,\ -3),\ B(-2,\ 1)\\\\\text{Substitute:}\\\\x=\dfrac{1+(-2)}{2}=\dfrac{-1}{2}=-\dfrac{1}{2}\\\\y=\dfrac{-3+1}{2}=\dfrac{-2}{2}=-1[/tex]
