Medians 2:1

The Median to side b (tb) in triangle ABC is 12 cm long.
a. What is the distance of the center of gravity T from vertex B?
b, Find the distance between T and the side b.

Correct answer:

t2 =  8 cm
t1 =  4 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

t=12 cm t=t1+t2 t1:t2 = 1:2  t2=32 t=32 12=32 12=324=8 cm
t1=tt2=128=4=4 cm   Verifying Solution:   r=t1:t2=4:8=21=0.5=1:2 s=t1+t2=4+8=12 cm
