Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1m∠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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea because it wants angle c... And C is bisected so its halfed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think angle at C is getting bisect.. which means its dividing the angle in half.. so just half the angle of C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes incenter is the bisectors and circumcenter is the perpandicular bisectors. I do not know where the medians are involved

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A median bisects a side of the triangle, but it doesn't necessarily also bisect the angle. dw:1350322892891:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I see so it intersects at the middle of a line but doesnt always bisect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Medians bisect sides. The three medians intersect at the centroid. Angle bisectors bisect angles. The three angle bisectors intersect at the incenter.
