Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The median from vertex C is the segment drawn from C to the midpoint of the opposite side. So, you need to get the midpoints of segment AB.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1>is the answer (3/2, 1)? For the midpoint of segment AB, I got [ (32)2, (52)/2] = (1/2, 3/2). To get the midpoint of a segment when you know the endpoints of the segment, take the average of the xcoordinates of the endpoints and the average of the ycoordinates of the endpoint.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To get the length of segment CM find the distance between points C and M using the Distance Formula. The segment CM itself is the median from vertex C of the triangle to the midpoint of side AB.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The distance formula is attached. Crank out the distance using the formula and the two points C and M. Recall that C is (5, 7) and that M is (1/2, 3/2). Post what you get and we can compare answers. @Nathalia.agui

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1CM = (√ 370) / 2 Check that result. Part B is for you to try first. :) @Nathalia.agui
