We know midpoint is a point which divides the line segments into two equal parts. We can find the midpoint for line-segment only; we cannot find the midpoint in line. Since line will extend indefinitely in both directions. In ray also we cannot find the midpoint. Since, it has no end point.  If (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are two end points of a line segment then the formula to find the

Problem 1: Find the midpoint of the line segment with end points (-2, 4) and (4, 4).
Solution: Step1: We can take the given points as

=> (x1, y1) = (-2, 4) and (x2, y2) = (4, 4).
=> Step2: we have the midpoint formula, that is

=> Step3: Now we can plug the values in this formula

Problem 2: Find the midpoint of the line segment connecting the points (b, 2c) and (5b, 4c).
Solution: Step1: We can take the given points as
=> (x1, y1) = (b, 2c) and (x2, y2) = (5b, 4c)
=> Step2: we have the midpoint formula, that is
