CALCULUS Understanding Its Concepts and Methods

Medians of a triangle

A median of a triangle is a
line joining a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side. The three medians
of a triangle intersect in a point called the
**centroid**.

The
centroid is two-thirds of the way from any vertex to the midpoint of the
opposite side.
