A segment from one of the vertices of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side is called a median. Consider the triangle defined by A=(2,0), B=(6,0), and C=(4,6). Find an equation for the line that contains the median drawn from A to BC

I used the median equation to find the answer and then I found the slope and plugged it into y=mx+b
