# A new transmission tower will be put up midway between two existing towers. On a map drawn on a coordinate plane, the coordinates of first existing tower are (-5,-3) and the coordinates of the second existing tower are (9,13). What are the coordinates of the point where the new tower will be placed?

Midpoint of 2 points in a Cartesian Plane:

x1 = -5    x2 = 9
y1 = -3    y2 = 13

Midpoint =

Midpoint =

Midpoint = (2, 5)

The coordinates of the point where the new tower will be placed is at (2,5).
