What are the coordinates of the midpoint of the segment whose endpoints are A(−3, −5) and B(2, 7) ?

Enter your answer, as DECIMALS in the boxes.

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.
\((-0.5,1)\)
