## Midpoint Formula

The formula to find the midpoint between two points on a plane is expressed as:

_{1}+ x

_{2})/2 , (y

_{1}+ y

_{2})/2

## Midpoint Sample Problem

Scot has two points on a plane and he would like to know the midpoint. His points are (5,8) and (2,4). What is the midpoint?

The midpoint is: (3.5,6)

To solve this problem, the equation would look like the following:

(5 + 2)/2 , (8 + 4)/2

For the first set of variables, x;

(5 + 2) / 2 = 3.5

For the second set of variables, y;

(8 + 4) / 2 = 6

This means that your midpoint is located at x point 3.5 and y point 6, which should be between the initial 2 points you started with.
