Background Tutorials

Determine the coordinates of a point that is a given fractional distance less than one from one end of a line segment to the other in one- and two-dimensional coordinate systems, including finding the midpoint

If you need to find the distance between to points on the coordinate, you'll probably use the distance formula to get your answer. This tutorial introduces you to the distance formula and even shows you how to find it!
