Calculate the midpoint of the segment by using formula : M = [(x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2], where (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are end points of the segment.

The end points of the segment AB are A = (-1, -6) and B = (-6, 5).

To find the mid point of segment AB, substitute (x1, y1) = (-1, -6) and (x2, y2) = (-6, 5) in the above formula.

M = [{(- 1) + (- 6)}/2, {(- 6) + (5)}/2]

M = (- 7/2, - 1/2).
