# Find the Coordinates of the Midpoints of the Line Segment Joining P(-11,-8) and Q(8,-2) - Mathematics

Find the coordinates of the midpoints of the line segment joining

P(-11,-8) and Q(8,-2)

#### Solution

The given points are P(-11,-8) and Q(8,-2).

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

⇒ x = (-11+8)/2 , y = (-8-2)/2

⇒ x = -3/2 , y= -10/2

 ⇒ x = - 3/2 , y = -5

Therefore,  (-3/2,-5) are the coordinates of midpoint of PQ .
