Find the center of the circle using endpoints of diameter

Given two endpoint of diameter of a circle (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) find out the center of a circle.

Examples :

Input  : x1 = -9, y1 = 3, and 
         x2 = 5, y2 = –7
Output : -2, –2

Input  :  x1 = 5, y1 = 3 and 
          x2 = –10 y2 = 4
Output : –2.5, 3.5

Midpoint Formula:
The midpoint of two points, (x1, y2) and (x2, y2) is : M = ((x 1 + x 2) / 2, (y 1 + y 2) / 2)

The center of the circle is the mid point of its diameter so we calculate the mid point of its diameter by using midpoint formula.
