# Find the midpoint of the segment below

1. If we are given 2 points A(a, b) and B(c, d),  the midpoint M, of segment AB has coordinates: $M_A_B=( \frac{a+c}{2} , \frac{b+d}{2} )$ 2. We are given the points A(2, 3) and B(10, 3) the midpoint of AB, is given by the above formula: $M_A_B=( \frac{2+10}{2} , \frac{3+3}{3} )=(6, 3)$ 3.  Remark, since the segment is horizontal, that is the y-coordinate of both points is 3, the y coordinate of the midpoint will also be 3. While the x coordinate is still found by $\frac{2+10}{2}$ Answer: (6, 3)
