  1. If the fly is walking on the floor toward the opposite corner, the distance to the corner can be represented by a sloped line. Using the
    co-ordinates of the end points, the mid
    -point formular can be used to calculate the co-ordinates of the mid
    point and distance:

    (X1,Y1),(Xo,Yo),(X2,Y2).

    Xo = (X1+X2)/2.

    Yo = (Y1+Y2)/2.

    Do = sqrt((Xo-X1)^2 + (Yo-Y1)^2)) = Mid-distance.
