# Gcse maths midpoint questions quick help please watch

1. Hi I need help on how you do midpoint questions this is without a graph I have two questions thanks

Q1: Find the coordinates of M, the midpoint of A and B where A has coordinates (-2, 6) and B has coordinates (4, 9).
The coordinates of M are:

Q2: S has coordinates (1, 3) and is the midpoint of R and T where the
coordinates of R are (4, -7). Find the coordinates of T.
The coordinates of T are:
2. The midpoint of and
is

You just need to work out the average of the x and y coordinates.
3. Midpoint of 2 points, for midpoint x coordinate add together the two x coordinates of original Pts and divide by 2. For y coordinate of midpoint Add together two y coordinates of original Pts and divide by 2.
Should give (1, 7.5) for your Q1.
For q2 think about how you find the midpoint and work in reverse to find the other original Pt.
4. Thank you
