Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@RONNCC understanding a simple formula as midpoint  will help. some people are visual and others are analytical.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You add the two numbers together and divide by 2. That gives you the number in the middle. Do you understand that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well then, think of the midpoint as the average. You average the x values and average the y values and that gives you the point in the middle which is the midpoint.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So for (2,1) and (3,2) just find the average of 2 and 3. Then find the average of 1 and 2.
