Language/Type: Java method basics return
Author: Eric Spishak (on 2010/12/28)

Write a method named hasMidpoint that accepts three integers as parameters and returns true if one of the integers is the midpoint between the other two integers; that is, if one integer is exactly halfway between them. Your method should return false if no such midpoint relationship exists.

The integers could be passed in any order; the midpoint could be the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. You must check all cases.

Calls such as the following should return true:

hasMidpoint(4, 6, 8)
hasMidpoint(2, 10, 6)
hasMidpoint(8, 8, 8)
hasMidpoint(25, 10, -5)

Calls such as the following should return false:

hasMidpoint(3, 1, 3)
hasMidpoint(1, 3, 1)
hasMidpoint(21, 9, 58)
hasMidpoint(2, 8, 16)
