    What do you know about incenters?

    m∠A = 58 m∠B = 64 m∠C = 58 The triangle has it's 3 Medians marked(D,E,F). A median cut's exactly half way from a vertex to the opposite side... It bisects the line segment and angle. So angle BCE would be half of angle C's measurement.

    yea because it wants angle c... And C is bisected so its halfed

    i think angle at C is getting bisect.. which means its dividing the angle in half.. so just half the angle of C

    @jazy, the incenter is the intersection of the angle bisectors. The medians are not involved. "A median cut's exactly half way from a vertex to the opposite side... It bisects the line segment and angle." This statement is false.

    yes incenter is the bisectors and circumcenter is the perpandicular bisectors. I do not know where the medians are involved

    what is the median of a triangle?

    A median bisects a side of the triangle, but it doesn't necessarily also bisect the angle. |dw:1350322892891:dw|

    In triangle ABC (that I drew), AN is an angle bisector and passes through the incenter of the triangle. CM is a median and makes AM = MB. It is not also an angle bisector of ACB. ACM =/= MCB.

    I see so it intersects at the middle of a line but doesnt always bisect

    Medians bisect sides. The three medians intersect at the centroid. Angle bisectors bisect angles. The three angle bisectors intersect at the incenter.
