Abstract: Let T be a self map on a bounded interval [a, b] with $ a,b \in T([a,b])$. Suppose that for any x, y in [a, b],

$\displaystyle \vert T(x) - T(y)\vert \leqq \tfrac{1}{2}(\vert x - T(x)\vert + \vert y - T(y)\vert).$

It is shown without the continuity of T that the midpoint of [a, b] is a fixed point of T. A nontrivial example is given.
