Subject: Medians of a triangle
Name: Brittany
Who are you: Student

Where do the medians of a triangle meet?
1. Inside the triangle
2. On the traingle
3. Outside the traingle

Thanks Brittany

Hi Brittany.

I'll give you a big hint: for any triangle, the answer is always the same. Try it with the simplest triangle - an equilateral triangle - and find where the medians intersect. The median is the line you draw from a corner to the midpoint of the opposite side.

Hope this helps,
Stephen La Rocque.
