    well, i know what the centroid of a triangle is, it is the center where the lines from the angles to their opposite side midpoints all meet... scalene sounds familiar, like congruent triangles are scalene right?

    scalene triangle is one with no equal sides; like 3-4-5...if I recall correctly

    ok...circumcenter is the perpendiculars that are from the mid poits of each side; orthocenter is the perpendiculars that drop from each angle.. got that much so far :) so let me draw a scalene with both properties and see if the resuls match this question

    You wrote: "prove that the centroid of a scalene triangle divides the line joining orthocenter and circumcenter in the ratio 2:1" this is a picture of a scalene, with orthos and circums included in it.. just need to include the "centroid" part to determine the veracity of the "proof". country? USA...state? florida

    we have the picture, now we can add number to it to determine the proof..right?

    I used the generic "paint" program in windows :)

    they want to know if the purple line that connects the points that make up the ortho and the circum is intersected by a ratio of 2:1 by the point that is created from the centroid. Do you agree with my assessment so far?

    we need to determine angles, and measurements in order to "prove" the statement. which will take me about 30mins or so :)

    so far I got this much :) There is no restrictions to scalenes so a right scalene should have the same property. I used a 3-4-5 right triangle
