there is a proper formula but i happen to not know that formula, so i figured out an easy way to do it.

to find the midpoint you just do (x1 + x2)/2 for the x value and (y1 + y2)/2 for the y value.

the reason this works is because the midpoint between two points is always going to be halfway between each x and each y, otherwise itd be a pretty sloppy mid point. the mid is short for middle, so if it isnt in the middle, its not a midpoint.

somebody else should get the right formula in here though
