# Python: Calculate midpoints of a line

## Python Basic: Exercise-73 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the midpoints of a line.

**Pictorial Presentation:**

**Sample Solution:**

**Python Code:**

```
# Print a message to inform the user that the program will calculate the midpoint of a line.
print('\nCalculate the midpoint of a line :')
# Prompt the user to enter the x and y coordinates of the first endpoint of the line.
x1 = float(input('The value of x (the first endpoint) '))
y1 = float(input('The value of y (the first endpoint) '))
# Prompt the user to enter the x and y coordinates of the second endpoint of the line.
x2 = float(input('The value of x (the first endpoint) '))
y2 = float(input('The value of y (the first endpoint) '))
# Calculate the x-coordinate of the midpoint of the line.
x_m_point = (x1 + x2)/2
# Calculate the y-coordinate of the midpoint of the line.
y_m_point = (y1 + y2)/2
print();
# Print a message to indicate that the program is displaying the midpoint.
print("The midpoint of the line is :")
# Print the x-coordinate of the midpoint.
print( "The midpoint's x value is: ", x_m_point)
# Print the y-coordinate of the midpoint.
print( "The midpoint's y value is: ", y_m_point)
```

Sample Output:

Calculate the midpoint of a line : The value of x (the first endpoint) 2 The value of y (the first endpoint) 2 The value of x (the first endpoint) 4 The value of y (the first endpoint) 4 The midpoint of line is : The midpoint's x value is: 3.0 The midpoint's y value is: 3.0
