# How to find the best collective midpoint between more than 2 points?

If I have more than 2 points on a graph, how would I best find a point that might be the midpoint between all of them?

Independent of whether the points are on a graph, you can find what might be called their midpoint by forming the average of each of the coordinates. –  joriki Apr 26 '11 at 20:09

@Mitch: Thanks. I've just figured that out by the OP's reaction to Ross's answer :) –  t.b. Apr 26 '11 at 20:26

If you have a bunch of $n$ points, $(x_i,y_i)$, you can use $$(\frac{1}{n}\sum x_i,\frac{1}{n}\sum y_i)$$ Does that meet your needs?
