(A) (3, 4)
(B) (12, 18)
(C) (6, 8)
(D) (9, 6)
(E) (6, 9) mid point = (\(\frac{x1+x2}{2}\) , \(y\frac{+y2}{2}\)) = \(\frac{3+9}{2}\) , \(\frac{5+13}{2}\) = (6,9)

(A) (3, 4)
(B) (12, 18)
(C) (6, 8)
(D) (9, 6)
(E) (6, 9) Midpoint formula = \([(x_1 + x_2)/2, (y_1 + y_2)/2]\) Hence, Midpoint = (3+9)/2, (5+13)/2 = (6, 9) Answer: Option E

(A) (3, 4)
(B) (12, 18)
(C) (6, 8)
(D) (9, 6)
(E) (6, 9) We can use the midpoint formula ((x_1 + x_2)/2 , (y_1 + y_2)/2): ((3 + 9)/2, (5 + 13)/2) (12/2 , 18/2) (6, 9) Answer: E
