This online calculator find 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) distance is the hypotenuse of right triangle, and it is calculated like this: \sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2} and 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 graphical way to find a midpoint - you draw two half-circles from both ends with radius equals to distance between them, then draw line connecting circles intersections. That line intersects with the original line at the midpoint.
