(5+1)/2 is the xcoordinate of the midpoint and (2+8)/2 is the ycoordinate of the midpoint it's almost like averaging the points to fin d the midpoint ;)

dw:1357961856209:dw If you want the number between two other numbers, you have to essentially add the numbers together and divide the sum by 2. Like, if you wanted the number between 3 and 5 (which is obviously 4), we could take 5 + 3 = 8 and then divide by 2 8/2 = 4. (x1 + x2)/2 = the midpoint xvalue (y1 + y2)/2 similarly for the yvalue. If that makes some sense of the formula.
