    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

    Does it mean BC is split in half equally?

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

    X1+x2/2= xm. y1+y2/2=ym

    Okay so you used that to get the midpoint between B and C Then used the midpoint and A to find the slope?
