These worksheets will give your students practice deriving the midpoints of given segments and coordinates.

#### What is a Midpoint of a Line Segment? The line segment is defined as the portion of a line with two endpoints. It suggests that a line segment has a definite starting point, and it ends at a defined point. We use letters to denote the two endpoints of the line segment. The midpoint of a line segment is defined as the average of its two endpoints. Just like we divide the number by two to find their average, we will divide the measurements of line segments by two. In some cases, we need to locate or find out the point present midway between two endpoints. For example, you might have to bisect the given line segment and divide it into two equal parts. The formula for the midpoint of the line segment works like any other formula used for finding the average. It is typically expressed as: M = ((x1 + x2)/2 , (y1 + y2)/2). Where (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are the two endpoints.

The exact middle of a line segment or side of a geometric figure is found in the dead center. Because of this both sides of the line segment are therefore equal. While many students discount this skill of calculating the middle, it is an imperative task for engineers, construction workers, and architects. Every time you travel over a bridge or tunnel you had better hope the engineers behind the construction knew where the anchor mid-points should be set. These worksheets explain how to find the midpoint of a segment. Please note that some answers may contain variables rather than integers.
