Respected sir/ mam,
Can you kindly explain the difference between median and altitude and give an example.

Expert Answer:

A median is a line segment that connects the vertex of a triangle to the mid-point of the opposite side.
An altitude is a perpendicular drawn from the vertex of a triangle to the opposite side.
Observe the figure. The blue line is the median and the red line is the altitude. Hope this clears your confusion. Thank you.
