(1, 2)

Step-by-step explanation:

Hi there!

We are given two points - (4, 7) and (-2, -3)

We want to find the midpoint between these two points

The midpoint can be found using the formula [tex](\frac{x_1 + x_2}{2}, \frac{y_1+y_2}{2})[/tex], where [tex](x_1, y_1)[/tex] and [tex](x_2, y_2)[/tex] are points

We have everything we need to find the midpoint, but let's label the values of the points to avoid any confusion & mistakes


Now substitute into the formula

[tex](\frac{x_1 + x_2}{2}, \frac{y_1+y_2}{2})[/tex]

[tex](\frac{4+ -2 }{2}, \frac{7+-3}{2})[/tex]

The pluses can be replaced with minus signs:

[tex](\frac{4 -2 }{2}, \frac{7-3}{2})[/tex]

Now subtract

[tex](\frac{2 }{2}, \frac{4}{2})[/tex]



The midpoint is (1, 2)
