2. There are two different formulas for midpoint. Is it possible to use the formula for midpoint "on a number line" when you are trying to find the midpoint of two points on a coordinate plane? Explain why or why not.

So, √(a^2+b^2) is a positive value

There is no "midpoint" of two points in the plane. There is, however, the midpoint of the line segment joining the two points. That will turn out to be the center of the circle which has the two points as the ends of a diameter.
