## Finding the mid point between to coordinates

You can see that the horizontal position of the mid point is half way between the horizontal positions of A and B.  Also you can see that the vertical position of the mid point is half way between the vertical positions of A and B.

$\therefore$ mid point $= (X_{average},Y_{average})$

Example

Find the mid point of $(3,8)$ and $(7,-3)$

Mid point =$\left(\frac{3+7}{2},\frac{8+-3}{2}\right)=\left(5,\frac{5}{2}\right)$
