# Midpoint

The midpoint of a segment $$\overline{AB}$$ is defined as the point $$M$$ belonging to the segment itself and which measures the same distance from its ends $$A$$ and $$B$$. In general, in the plane, given two points $$A(x_A,y_A)$$ and $$B(x_B,y_B)$$, the midpoint between them is calculated with the following formulas, which provide the respective coordinates of point $$M(x_M,y_M)$$:

$x_M=\dfrac{x_A+x_B}{2}$

$y_M=\dfrac{y_A+y_B}{2}$
