    17- -9=26/2=13>>-9+13=4

    1+3=4/2=2

             mp=          (4,2)

    Its the average of each of its components.

    For instance, the x_mid = x_avg = (17 + -9) / 2 = 4.

    Can you do now the y_avg ?

    Done!

    Hopefully no one will spoil you the answer thereby depriving you from your personal enhancement; that would be very inconsiderate of them.

    Just average the x-coordinates and then the y-coordinates.

    x_mid = (17 + (-9)) / 2

    = 8/2

    = 4

    y_mid = (1 + 3) / 2

    = 4/2

    = 2

    Answer:(4,2)
