# Find the mid-point of the line segment joining the points (8, −2) and (−8, 0) - Mathematics

Sum

Find the mid-point of the line segment joining the points

(8, −2) and (−8, 0)

#### Solution

Mid−point of a line = ((x_1 + x_2)/2, (y_1 + y_2)/2)

Mid−point of AB = ((8 - 8)/2, (-2 + 0)/2)

= (0/2, (-2)/2)

= (0, −1)
