JavaScript - Calculate the midpoint between two points

JavaScript fundamental (ES6 Syntax): Exercise-267 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to calculate the midpoint between two pairs of points.

  • Destructure the array to get x1, y1, x2 and y2.
  • Calculate the midpoint for each dimension by dividing the sum of the two endpoints by 2

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

const mid_point = ([x1, y1], [x2, y2]) => [(x1 + x2) / 2, (y1 + y2) / 2];
console.log(mid_point([6, 6], [4, 4]));
console.log(mid_point([2, -2], [4, 4]));
console.log(mid_point([2, 2], [-4, -1]));
console.log(mid_point([1, 3], [2, 5]));

Sample Output:

[5,5]
[3,1]
[-1,0.5]
[1.5,4]

Flowchart:

flowchart: Clamp a number within the inclusive range specified by the given boundary values a and b.

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Shorten an array using its length property

A great way of shortening an array is by redefining its length property.

let array = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 8, 9]
array.length = 4
// Result: [0, 1, 2, 3]

Important to know though is that this is a destructive way of changing the array. This means you lose all the other values that used to be in the array.
