Find the distance and midpoint between two points

This online calculator finds the distance and midpoint between two points in cartesian coordinates.

This online calculator finds the distance and midpoint between two points in cartesian coordinates. The formulas are very simple: for two given points, (x_1,y_1) and (x_2,y_2), the distance is the hypotenuse of a right triangle, and it is calculated like this: \sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}, and the middle point is the average of both coordinates (\frac{x_1+x_2}{2},\frac{y_1+y_2}{2}).

However, this calculator also displays the line on the graph (in blue), and shows the graphical way to find a midpoint – you draw two half-circles from both ends with the radius equal to the distance between them, then draw a line connecting the intersections of the circles. That line intersects with the original line at the midpoint.
