Just out of curiosity can the midpoint formula have fraction coordinates? If so can you please show me an example ? :)

    the average of an even and an odd number is not a whole number

    so for example the midpoint of \((1,3)\) and \((8,10)\) would have fractions

    and of course the midpoint of \((\frac{5}{7},-\frac{8}{3})\) and \((\frac{2}{3},-\frac{5}{4})\) would be nice and ugly

    not sure what you are asking you can always find the midpoint of two points, because you can always take the average of any two numbers
