The middle point of a line segment.

The endpoints of a line segment graphed on a Cartesian coordinate system are (2, -5) and (-4, 2). What are the coordinates of the midpoint of the segment?

If you mean that the line segment endpoints are (-4, 0) and (7, 0) then the midpoint is (1.5, 0)

Use the midpoint calculator to find out the midpoint of a line segment, which is the point that cuts the segment into two equal parts.

If you mean endpoints of (0, 0) and (0, 15) then the midpoint is at (0, 7.5)

Each coordinate of the midpoint of a straight line segment is the arithmetic mean of the coordinates of the endpoints. So the y-coordinate is (0+15)/2 = 7.5

A line that intersects a segment at its midpoint bisects the segment.

If you are only given one endpoint and a midpoint, you know what the middle of the line segment is. Since the midpoint is half of what the line segment's length is, all you have to do is find the distance between the endpoint given and the midpoint, then add that coordinate to your midpoint and get your other endpoint. For example: Endpoint A: (4,5) Midpoint: (6,8) Distance between: (2,3) Add (2,3) to (6,8) and get Endpoint B: (8,11).

The midpoint of a line segment would be to add up all of the numbers in the segment. Then divide by the number of numbers that were added. For example if a 1, 3, and 8 were added, divide by 3. This will give the midpoint of the line segment.

Some methods you could use to find the y-coordinate of the midpoint of a vertical line segment with endpoints at 0 0 and 0 15 are by: Counting by hand Dividing 15 by 2
