Hi tina123;

Those formulas are the correct way to get the midpoint ( the red marks ) of a side of a rectangle when you have the (x,y) coordinates of the vertices of the side.

Try it on one.

Do you need a little more to understand it?

Hy Dear Bobby,

Is that correct way to get the location in x,y of mid point of width and height ?
Thanks

Since the sides of a rectangle are either horizontal or vertical lines you do this.

For a horizontal side with coordinates (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) the midpoint is

For a vertical side with coordinates (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) the midpoint is

yes , i mid point(int form of x ,y ) of a side of rectangle  .
thanks

Hi;

To get the midpoint of a side you just add the coordinates and divide by 2. Same as for a line.

i know the way to get the mid point . mid point will be single value .
i want mid point  location in x , y .
How can we get that  ?

Well, we can find central  location of a rectangle .
let say we have x,y initiail corner of rectangle is 1,1 . width and height of rectangle is 92 and 23 .

so  cX = x + width/2 , cy =y+ height /2
that will give u central location of rectangle .
but how  can we get location of mid point of width or height  ?

Hi tina123;

In order to get the x,y coordinates of your rectangle it would have to located along the xy axis otherwise the center point of it will be different for each rectangle.

See the drawing below.

i have a rectangle with height = 123 and width = 92. also i have central location x ,y = 47 , 62 .

I can find the mid  point of width and height of rectangle .
but i want to get location x ,y of mid point of width or height of rectangle .How  can i get that .
Can any one please tell me mathematically .
thanks
