Step 1
1 of 2

Determine the midpoint of the given coordinates.

\begin{align*} \text {M} & = \left ( \dfrac{x_{1} + x_{2}}{2} , \dfrac {y_{1} + y_{2}}{2} \right) && {\text {midpoint formula}} \\ & = \left( \dfrac {-5 + 12}{2} + \dfrac{3 + 8}{2} \right) && {\text {substitute for the given values}} \\ & = \left ( \dfrac {7}{2} , \dfrac {11}{2} \right) && {\text {simplify the numerators}} \\ & = \left ( \dfrac{7}{2}, \dfrac{11}{2} \right) && {\text {midpoint of the segment}} \end{align*}
