**1. Homework Statement**

in checkers you jump over the enemys piece and land on a square after that.

i'm making this game in c++ using sdl~

i just want to know how to get the square i have jumped over using the end square and start square locations

**2. Homework Equations**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

where sx, sy = start x,y and ex, ey and the end position x,y

disty = ey - sy;

distx = ex - sx;

sx+distx/2 - should be the x val of the square i jumped over

sy+disty/2 - should be the y val of the square i jumped over

is this correct? i tryed it on paper and it seems to work one way but not another, jumping upwards for example gives me a negative number for example, any ideas appreciated :(

should be simple, perhaps i have been looking at this for too long lol.

thanks in advance
