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.

Result

x =  8 cm
y =  4 cm

Solution:

t=12 cm x=23 t=23 12=8 cmt=12 \ \text{cm} \ \\ x=\dfrac{ 2 }{ 3 } \cdot \ t=\dfrac{ 2 }{ 3 } \cdot \ 12=8 \ \text{cm}
y=tx=128=4 cmy=t-x=12-8=4 \ \text{cm}
