Answer

$(-5,-1)$

Work Step by Step

We are given that the midpoint $M$ of a line segment $PQ$ with endpoints ($x_{1}$,$y_{1}$) and ($x_{2}$,$y_{2}$) is equal to: $M=(\frac{x_{1}+x_{2}}{2},\frac{y_{1}+y_{2}}{2})$ Therefore, $M=(\frac{-8+(-2)}{2},\frac{4+(-6)}{2})=(\frac{-8-2}{2},\frac{4-6}{2})=(\frac{-10}{2},\frac{-2}{2})=(-5,-1)$.
