To find the midpoint of a segment, find the average of the x-coordinates and y-coordinates.

\(\left(\frac{-3+2}{2},\frac{-5+7}{2}\right)\) | Now, simplify both coordinates. |

\(\left(-\frac{1}{2},\frac{2}{2}\right)\) | Since you specified that the answer must be in decimal format, I will convert the fractions to decimals. |

\((-0.5,1)\) | |
