Find the midpoint of the line segment whose endpoints are (-2, 5) and (6, -9).

The midpoint of the line segment whose endpoints are (-2, 5) and (6, -9) is (2, -2). ((x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2) = ((-2 + 6)/2, ((5 - 9)/2) = (4/2, -4/2) = (2, -2)

The midpoint of the line segment whose endpoints are (-2, 5) and (6, -9) is (2, -2).

((x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2)

= ((-2 + 6)/2, ((5 - 9)/2)

= (4/2, -4/2)

= (2, -2)

((x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2)

= ((-2 + 6)/2, ((5 - 9)/2)

= (4/2, -4/2)

= (2, -2)
