To find the midpoint of a line segment joining two points (x₁, y₁) and (x₂, y₂), you can use the midpoint formula:

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

For the points (7, 4) and (-8, 7), the midpoint would be:

Midpoint = ((7 + (-8)) / 2, (4 + 7) / 2)

Midpoint = ((7 - 8) / 2, (4 + 7) / 2)

Midpoint = (-1 / 2, 11 / 2)

So, the midpoint of the line segment joining the points (7, 4) and (-8, 7) is (-1/2, 11/2).
