In the complex plane, the line segment with end-points -11 + 3i and 3 - 7i is plotted in the complex plane. Find the complex number corresponding to the mid-point of this line segment.

Writing these complex numbers as points, we have $(-11, 3)$ and $(3, -7)$. The midpoint is given by the average of the x- and y-coordinates, so we have $(\frac{(-11)+(3)}{2}, \frac{(3)+(-7)}{2})$. Simplifying gives the point $(-4, -2)$. The complex number corresponding to that point is $\boxed{-4-2i}$

Yep! Thanks again! Great solution, I forgot about the midpoint formula blush
