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)
