7-106.

Each part below gives the endpoints of a segment. Find the coordinates of the midpoint of the segment. Hint: Try graphing the points.

1. $(5, 2)$ and $(11, 14)$

Average the $x$-coordinates.

$x = \frac{5 + 11}{2} = 8$

Average the $y$-coordinates.

$y = \frac{2 + 14}{2} = 8$

The midpoint is at $(8,8)$.

1. $(3, 8)$ and $(10, 4)$

Follow the same procedures to find the midpoints of the other segment.
