Question: Find the midpoint of the line segment that joins A and B as shown.

Answer: Point $A$ has coordinates $(-2, -2)$.

Point $B$ has coordinates $(0, 3)$.

By taking the average of the $x$ coordinates of $A$ and $B$, the $x$ coordinate of the midpoint is

$\frac{-2 + 0}{2} = -1$.

By taking the average of the $y$ coordinates of $A$ and $B$, the $y$ coordinate of the midpoint is

$\frac{-2 + 3}{2} = \frac{1}{2}$.

Therefore, the coordinates of the midpoint are $\left(-1, \frac{1}{2}\right)$.
