Midpoint Between Two Locations
How to Use this Applet
The Graph Area
 Drag an endpoint of the segment to move it to any location.
 Drag the midpoint of the segment to move it to any location. The SELECTED endpoint will remain fixed. The remaining endpoint will move to accommodate the changed location of the midpoint.
 Drag a point along the segment (other than an endpoint or the midpoint) to move the segment.
 <SHIFT>+drag an endpoint of the segment to move it to any other location equidistant from the other endpoint.
 <CONTROL>+drag an endpoint of the segment to move it to any other location along a line containing the segment.
 <SHIFT>+drag the midpoint of the segment to move it to any other location equidistant from the SELECTED endpoint. The remaining endpoint will move to accommodate the changed location of the midpoint.
 <CONTROL>+drag the midpoint of the segment to move it to any other location along a line containing the segment.
Other
 The arrow keys will move the "selected" endpoint.
 If the arrow keys don't respond, click the cursor in the applet frame then try again.
