Medians AX and BY of triangle ABC are perpendicular at point O. AX = 12 and BC = 10.

 

a. Find AO and BY

b. Find the length of median CZ

 

 

pls help!

Medians AX and BY of triangle ABC are perpendicular at point O. AX = 12 and BC = 10.

a. Find AO and BY

b. Find the length of median CZ

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Median Theorem states that the medians of a triangle intersect at a point called the centroid that is two-thirds of the distance from the vertices to the midpoint of the opposite sides.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If AX = 12, then AO = 2/3(AX), and OX = 1/3(AX)     AO = 8       OX = 4

 

If OX = 4, and BX = 5, then BO = 3        (I'll let you find BYsmiley

 

CZ you can calculate using CX, OX, and ∠CXO.          (∠CXO ≈ 143.13º)
