Method 1 You may find the midpoint by simply dividing the length of the segment by 2 and counting that value from either of the endpoints. Find the midpoints of line segments AB and CD. The length of line segment AB is 8 (by counting). The midpoint is 4 units from either endpoint. On the graph, this point is (1,4). The length of line segment CD is 3 (by counting). The midpoint is 1.5 units from either endpoint. On the graph, this point is (2,1.5)
