Remember that a midpoint of a line segment is the point that divides the segment into two segments of equal length. On graph paper, plot the points
Plot the points at their given coordinates.
Divide the length by two in order to find the length of
To find the coordinates of the midpoint, take the coordinates of either Point P or Point Q and add or subtract, respectively, the length of PM and MQ to the
Check your answer by placing the point at the coordinates you found.
