Use the midpoint formula (that is just the average of the x values and the average of the y values of B and C) of the opposite side to determine the midpoint. Then use the pointpoint form of a line equation with the vertex A and this midpoint to answer the question. Pointpoint form: If the two points are (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}), then the equation of the line through them is You may want to convert the equation into standard form Ax + By = C as your final answer. Cheers,
