(3 ,7)

#### Explanation:

To find the mid-point of 2 given points

# (x_1,y_1)" and " (x_2,y_2)# use the

#color(blue)"mid-point formula"#

#color(red)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)color(black)((1/2(x_1+x_2),1/2(y_1+y_2)))color(white)(a/a)|)))# let

#(x_1,y_1)=((2,8)" and " (x_2,y_2)=(4,6)#

#rArr" mid-point "=(1/2(2+4),1/2(8+6))=(3,7)#
