This midpoint calculator calculates the distance and the midpoint between any two given points defined by their coordinates (x1,y1;x2,y2), even between two points defined by fractions. There is more information on how to calculate these figures below the tool.

## How does this midpoint calculator work?

The algorithm of this midpoint calculator uses the following formulas:

- Midpoint equation:

- Distance formula:

The coordinates of the two points can be:

- positive and/or negative numbers;

- numbers with or without decimals;

- expressed by fractions. In order to enter a coordinate in fraction format use “/” between the dividend and the divisor. For example use 7/9 for 7 divided by 9.

Example of a calculation

Find the midpoint and distance for two points having these coordinates:

P1: (-1 , 3)

P2: (2.5 , 2/9)

Result:

Midpoint = (0.75,1.61)

Distance ≈ 4.468339
