To find the middle between two numbers, we can add them together and then divide by 2.

For example, the middle between 4 and 7 is 4 + 7 = 11, 11 ÷ 2 = 5.5.

You can use the same method to find the midpoint (the middle) of a line segment.

A line segment is simply a part of a line between two points. A line segment has a beginning and the end.

Let's say we have a line segment between (1, 2) and (5, 6).

We need to find the middle between the x-coordinates and the y-coordinates.

Simply add the x-coordinates and divide by 2, then add the y-coordinates and divide by 2.

1 + 5 = 6

6 ÷ 2 = 3

2 + 6 = 8

8 ÷ 2 = 4

The coordinates of the midpoint of this line segment are (3, 4).
