Write an equation for the perpendicular bisector of the segment joining and in point-slope form.

Graph the points and draw the segment between them.

Segment between closed points, (negative 2, comma 3) & (4, comma negative 5).

Calculate the slope of the line between the points.

Then find negative the reciprocal (flip the fraction) of this slope for the perpendicular slope.

Find the midpoint.
