Determine the Midpoint of a Line Segment

 Description Determine the midpoint of a line segment.

Enter a start point of the line segment:

 > $\left[{1}{,}{2}\right]$
 $\left[{1}{,}{2}\right]$ (1)

Enter the end point of the line segment.

 > $\left[{6}{,}{7}\right]$
 $\left[{6}{,}{7}\right]$ (2)

Use the following formula to calculate the midpoint of the line segment created by joining the two points, (1) and (2), with a straight line.

 > $\frac{+}{2}$
 $\left[\frac{{7}}{{2}}{,}\frac{{9}}{{2}}\right]$ (3)
