The Midpoint Formula is the formula to calculate the midpoint between two points on the coordinate plane. It is the average of the x-coordinates and the average of the y-coordinates. To calculate add the x-coordinates of the two points and divide by two, then add the y-coordinates of the two points and divide by two.
The midpoint between the two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is The Distance Formula is derived from the Pythagorean Theorem.
