This online calculator finds the distance and midpoint between two points in cartesian coordinates. The formulas are very simple: for two given points, and , the distance is the hypotenuse of a right triangle, and it is calculated like this: , and the middle point is the average of both coordinates .

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.
