Answer

$(4, 6)$

Work Step by Step

RECALL: The coordinates of the midpoint of the points $(a, b)$ and $(c, d)$ can be found using the midpoint formula: $\left(\dfrac{a+c}{2}, \dfrac{b+d}{2}\right)$ Thus, using the formula above, the midpoint of $(1, 2)$ and $(7, 10)$ is: $\left(\dfrac{1+7}{2}, \dfrac{2+10}{2}\right) \\=\left(\dfrac{8}{2}, \dfrac{12}{2}\right) \\=(4, 6)$
