On this page is a *midpoint calculator*, which will return a point which is exactly in the middle of two points. It works for 1 through 6 dimensions, even though it is most common for two and three dimensions.

## What is the Midpoint?

The midpoint is the exact middle point of a line segment. When you calculate a midpoint, usually you are looking at a line segment drawn between two points and finding a middle point between them.

For each axis you’re interested in, the midpoint of two points is basically the average of the 2 points along that axis.

## Formula for Midpoint

The formula for midpoint of two points is:

So, for two-dimensions with points *(x1, y1), (x2, y2)*, here’s how it looks:

You can extend that to any arbitrary number of dimensions. And for 1 dimension, which is one line on an axis, you just need the arithmetic average of the two numbers to have the midpoint (e.g. the midpoint of 3 and 9 is 6).

## Using the Midpoint Calculator

To use the midpoint calculator, first select the number of dimensions or axes you’d like to enter your points using in the **Dimensions** pulldown. If you change the number of dimensions, the two point forms will either expand or contract in size.

After choosing dimensions, enter which every dimensions you need in the **First Point** and **Second Point** forms. When happy, merely press the **Compute Midpoint** button and we’ll put the midpoint in the **Midpoint** box.
