Wow! another formula to remember in algebra- just what you wanted. ¬†However sad you might be at learning more formulas the mid-point formula is pretty easy. ¬†The formula tells you the location (a point) that’s “mid way” between two other points. Like any formula make sure you understand how to plug in the correct values.


Key concepts to remember:

* the “mid-point” is a (x, y) ordered pair that is half-way between two other points
* make sure to use the formula correctly and don’t make simple mistakes when adding coordinates (common mistakes are incorrectly adding positive and negative numbers)




some key topics that involve the mid-point formula:

* ordered pairs (x,y) points
* distance formula
* coordinate geometry
