Midpoint formula - MYP Mathematics

How can we find the coordinates of the midpoint of line segment AB where A(2,-3) and B(0,12) ?

Thanks

Midpoint formula - MYP Mathematics

The coordinates of the midpoint of a line segment defined by the points $A(x_{1}, y_{1})$ and $B(x_{2}, y_{2})$ is given by the following formula:

$(x_{m}, y_{m} )=( \frac{x_{1}+x_{2}}{2},\frac{y_{1}+y_{2}}{2} )$

Applying the above formula in our case we have
$(x_{m}, y_{m} )=( \frac{2+0}{2},\frac{-3+12}{2} )=$

$=(1,\frac{9}{2})$

$=(1,\frac{9}{2})$

Hope these help!
