#### How do you find the midpoint of a line?

Find the distance between (-1, 1) and (3, 4). This problem is solved simply by plugging our x- and y-values into the distance formula: Sometimes you need to find the point that is exactly between two other points. This middle point is called the “midpoint”.

#### What is the formula for midpoint in geometry?

Midpoint Formula. Given the points ( 1, -2 ) and ( -3, 5 ), find the midpoint of the line segment joining them. Using the midpoint formula, label the points as x1 = -1, y1 = -2, x2 = -3, and y2 = 5.

#### What is the definition of a midpoint in geometry?

By definition, a midpoint of a line segment is the point on that line segment that divides the segment two congruent segments. In Coordinate Geometry, there are several ways to determine the midpoint of a line segment.

#### What is the formula for endpoint?

The midpoint of a line segment is the point that lies halfway between the endpoints. The formula for determining the midpoint of a line segment is: (m1, m2) = ((x1 + x2) / 2, (y1 + y2) / 2) The formula for determining an endpoint when you know the midpoint is: (x2, y2) = (2(m1) – x1, 2(m2) – y1)
