Step 1
Let mid point be P mid
Let first point be P 1 ( x 1 , y 1 ) ( - 4 , - 3 )
Then P mid = P 2 + P 1 2 ( mean value)
P mid = ( x 2 + x 1 2 , y 2 + y 1 2 )
P mid = ( 4 + ( - 4 ) 2 , ( - 8 ) + ( - 3 ) 2 ) = ( 0 , - 11 2 )
Step 2
Using the mean value is more straightforward than using
P 1 + P 2 - P 1 2 which is the alternative.
Permit me to demonstrate just for the mid x value
Distance between is P 2 - P 1 ( x 2 - x 1 ) = ( 4 - ( - 4 ) ) = + 8
Count from P 1 to x mid = + 8 2 = 4
Actual x value is P 1 + 4 = - 4 + 4 = 0
