Step 1
The points are:
$\left(-4,9\right)={x}_{1},{y}_{1}$
$\left(1,-3\right)={x}_{2},{y}_{2}$
The formula to calculate the midpoint is:
$\left(\frac{{x}_{1}+{x}_{2}}{2},\frac{{y}_{1}+{y}_{2}}{2}\right)$
$=\left(\frac{-4+1}{2},\frac{9+\left(-3\right)}{2}\right)$
$=\left(\frac{-3}{2},\frac{6}{2}\right)$
$=\left(\frac{-3}{2},3\right)$
