# Find the Coordinates of the Midpoints of the Line Segment Joining A(3,0) and B(-5, 4) - Mathematics

Find the coordinates of the midpoints of the line segment joining

A(3,0) and B(-5, 4)

#### Solution

The given points are A(3,0) and B(-5, 4)

Let  ( x,y) be the midpoint of AB. Then :

 x= (x_1 +x_2)/2 , y = (y_1+y_2)/2

 ⇒ x = (3+(-5))/2 , y = (0+4) /2

⇒ x =(-2)/2 , y = 4/2

⇒ x = -1 , y=2

Therefore, (-1,2)  are the coordinates of midpoint of AB.
