Definition of Median of a Triangle

A median of a triangle is one of the three line segments that join each vertex (corner) to the midpoint of the opposite side of the triangle.

The three medians of a triangle all intersect (cross over) at a single point.

The place where the three medians intersect is a point called the centroid of the triangle.
