Arkanoid - x-value of an object?

Hey there, I’m brand spankin new to this board. I dig the tutorials here.

So I’m making an arkanoid type game. I’m wondering if anybody knows how to find out where on the paddle (rectangle at bottom of window that you move to hit ball back up toward the blocks) the ball hits.

It seems to be pretty standard that the ball should reflect off of the paddle according to how far left or right of center it collides with it. So, I need to figure out how to grab the x-value of the paddle that the ball comes in contact with.

Any help would be great. Thanks.
