The change in coordinates from one end to the midpoint is half of the change in coordinates from one and to the other end.

#### Explanation:

To go from P to Q, the x coordinate increase by 6 and the y coordinate increase by 4.

To go from P to the midpoint, the x coordinate will increase by 3 and the y coordinate will increase by 2; this is the point
