What is the slope of the line containing the midpoint of the segment with endpoints at (0, 0) and (2, 3) and the midpoint of the segment with endpoints at (5, 0) and (6, 3)? Express your answer in simplest form.

Midpoint  of   (0,0)  and (2,3)   =   (  [ 2 + 0 ] / 2 , [ 0 + 3 ]  / 2 )  = ( 1, 3/2)

Midpoint of (5,0) and ( 6,3)  =    (   [ 5 + 6 ] / 2 , [0 + 3 ] / 2 )   =  (11/2, 3/2)

 

The slope of the line containing these two  midpoints =  0   [ since both  y coordinates are the same ]
