On this page is a 2D midpoint calculator, which will return a point which is exactly in the middle of two points when computing in two dimensions.

For dedicated general and 3D midpoint calculators, see here:

## What is the 2D Midpoint?

The 2D midpoint is the middle point of a line segment when two points are drawn on an X/Y axis. The midpoint is the point which is exactly centered between the other two.

## Formula for 2D Midpoint

The formula for two-dimensional midpoint of two points is:

midpoint\ (x_1, y_1), (x_2, y_2)=(\frac{x_1+x_2}{2}, \frac{y_1+y_2}{2})

## Using the 2D Midpoint Calculator

In the 2D midpoint calculator, don't touch the Dimensions pulldown (or leave it at 2). In the Point 1 and Point 2 forms, enter the X & Y value of the first and second point.

When done, press the Compute Midpoint button and find the midpoint in the Midpoint box.
