Asked by abhishek agrawal | 11th Feb, 2014, 12:15: PM
Let A = (1, -1), B=(0,4), C=(-5,3)
Let AD be the median through A.
Median AD of the triangle will divide the side BC in two equal parts. So D is the midpoint of side BC.
The coordinates of D are given by
Thus, using distance formula, length of median through A = Length of AD
Similarly, lengths of other two medians can be found.
