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. $$(-0.5,1)$$
