Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0midpoint just find the average of the x values and the average of the y values the average of two numbers can be found by adding those numbers and dividing by 2 (you know since there are two numbers)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the thing called d will give you the length when pluggin in the points the average of the x's and the average of the y's will give you the midpoint
