6.5 is halfway.

What is the location of the point on the number line that is 1/4 of the way from A=37 to B=13

It's the point located past ' 1 ' and a hair more than 1/3 of the way(actually 7/20 of the way) from ' 1 ' to ' 2 '.

Between 1 and 2, a quarter of the way along from 1.

You're on the right track, but that's a rather imprecise ... not to say 'sloppy' ... way to say it. The "value" of a point on the line is a meaningless concept. And averaging two points gives only the location of the point midway between those two points. The 'x' coordinate of the midpoint of a line segment is the average of the 'x' coordinates of its ends. The 'y' coordinate of the midpoint of a line segment is the average of the 'y' coordinates of its ends.

21/8 = 25/8 = 2.675 So it is a point 5/8 (0.675) of the way from 2 to 3.

Since a Line has only one dimention LENGTH, the only way to identify a point on it is to measure its distance from a known point ... usually on end or the other.

If you're only given one point, you can't draw the graph of the line, because there are an infinite number of different lines that all go through that one point. Or, to put it another way, if someone gives you a single point and asks you to draw the line through it, you can draw any old line you want through that point, and nobody can say it's wrong. In order to pin it down to one unique line, you need another piece of information in addition to the one point: either the slope of the line, or another point.

It's the middle point of line. Hardly! How far would that be from a point 3/4 way along the line? Try centre of a circle, or of a sphere.
