$\left( 0, 2 \right)$

Work Step by Step

Solution Outline: Use the Midpoint Formula to find the midpoint of the line segment joining the given points, $( -8,-12 )$ and $( 8,16 ).$ Using $\left( \dfrac{x_1+x_2}{2}, \dfrac{y_1+y_2}{2} \right)$ or the Midpoint Formula, then the midpoint of the line segment with the above given endpoints is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \left( \dfrac{-8+8}{2}, \dfrac{-12+16}{2} \right) \\\\= \left( \dfrac{0}{2}, \dfrac{4}{2} \right) \\\\= \left( 0, 2 \right) .\end{array}
