Just check these: tell me what I got wrong and try and help me get the right answer. Please.

1. and 2. are correct
Both of your midpoints are wrong.
To get the midpoint, ADD the x's and divide by 2, then add the y's and divide by 2
so
3. for the x's (7 + (1))/2 = 4
for the y's (7+7)/2 = 7
midpoint is (4,7) which would be c)
try 4. the same way and you should get (3,5)
