# How do you find the midpoint between points (3, 7) and (-6, 1)?

To find the midpoint between two points, you can use the midpoint formula. The midpoint formula states that the coordinates of the midpoint between two points (x₁, y₁) and (x₂, y₂) are given by the following formulas:

Midpoint x-coordinate = (x₁ + x₂) / 2 Midpoint y-coordinate = (y₁ + y₂) / 2

Using the given points (3, 7) and (-6, 1), we can substitute the values into the formulas:

Midpoint x-coordinate = (3 + (-6)) / 2 = -3/2 Midpoint y-coordinate = (7 + 1) / 2 = 4

Therefore, the midpoint between the points (3, 7) and (-6, 1) is (-3/2, 4).
