The centroid of a triangle is the intersection of the three medians of the triangle.

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.

JN = 3(QN) = 51

 

JQ = 2/3(JN) = 34
