What is the sum of the coordinates of the midpoint of the segment with endpoints (8,5) and (2,-1)?  

 

The horizontal component is from 2 to 8, the point halfway between them is 5  

The   vertical component is from 5 to –1, the point halfway between them is 2  

 

That makes the coordinates of the midpoint (5,2) ... so ... 5 + 2 = 7
