# Medians 2:1

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

Correct result:

x =  8 cm
y =  4 cm

#### Solution:

$t=12 \ \text{cm} \ \\ x=\dfrac{ 2 }{ 3 } \cdot \ t=\dfrac{ 2 }{ 3 } \cdot \ 12=8 \ \text{cm}$
$y=t-x=12-8=4 \ \text{cm}$ Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
