The coordinates of midpoint of the line segment are $\left(0.075,3.2\right)$.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1. Write down the given information.

The given line segment with end-points has coordinates $\left(0.45,7\right)\text{and}\left(-0.3,-0.6\right)$.

## Step 2. Concept used.

If a line segment has end-points at $\left({x}_{1},{y}_{1}\right)\text{and}\left({x}_{2},{y}_{2}\right)$then the midpoint of the segment has coordinates $\left(\frac{{x}_{1}+{x}_{2}}{2},\frac{{y}_{1}+{y}_{2}}{2}\right)$.

## Step 3. Calculation.

The coordinates of the midpoint are evaluated using the points $\left(0.45,7\right)\text{and}\left(-0.3,-0.6\right)$.

$\begin{array}{c}\text{Midpoint}=\left(\frac{{x}_{1}+{x}_{2}}{2},\frac{{y}_{1}+{y}_{2}}{2}\right)\\ =\left(\frac{0.45-0.3}{2},\frac{7-0.6}{2}\right)\\ =\left(\frac{0.15}{2},\frac{6.4}{2}\right)\\ =\left(0.075,3.2\right)\end{array}$

## Step 4. Conclusion.

The coordinates of midpoint of the line segment are $\left(0.075,3.2\right)$. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
