## How to Use the Midpoint Calculator?

Follow these steps to use the calculator and find the midpoint.

**Step 1:**Enter the 'x' and 'y' coordinate values for both the points in the respective input boxes.**Step 2:**Click on "**Calculate**" to find the midpoint.**Step 3:**Click on "**Reset**" to clear the fields and enter the new values.

## What is Midpoint?

Given any two points, say A (x_{1}, y_{1}) and C (x_{2}, y_{2}), the midpoint is a point B which is located halfway between points A and B.

### Midpoint = ( (x_{1 }+ x_{2}) / 2 , (y_{1 }+ y_{2}) / 2 )

**Solved Example:**

Find the midpoint of the line segment joining the points (-3, 2) and (1, -6)

**Solution:**

Let (x_{1}, y_{1}) = (-3, 2) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) = (1, -6)

The midpoint is calculated by the formula:

Midpoint = ( (x_{1 }+ x_{2}) / 2 , (y_{1 }+ y_{2}) / 2 )

= ( (-3 + 1) / 2 , (2 + (-6)) / 2 )

= (-2/2 , -4/2)

= (-1, -2)

Therefore, the midpoint of the line segment joining the points (-3, 2) and (1, -6) is (-1, -2)

Now use the calculator to find the midpoint of the line segment joining the following pairs of points.

- (2,3) and (4,5)
- (-4,6) and (-7,-2)
