Okay, I now know what you mean by knowing the corner. Here is what I
notice: you have points along the path as follows: 2,5 2,6 2,7 2,8 2,9
3,9 4,9. If you treat these as ordered data points, then 2,8 (as you
say) is the midpoint. What if you had as originally, 2,4 2,5 2,6 2,7
2,8 2,9 3,9 4,9. If you treat these as ordered data points, a midpoint
would fall between 2,7 and 2,8. What would you consider to be the
midpoint in this case?
