The line  $$y=\frac{x-3}{2}$$intersects the circle x^2 + y^2=5 at A and B. Find the coordinates of the midpoint of $$\overline{AB}$$

I put the line and circle on the graph and got the answer (2.2,-0.4) but that was incorecct. Can someone tell me what I did wrong?

There are two points of intersection; you found only one.

Find the other point and then find the point halfways between these two points.

This new point will be the point that the question wants.
