Medians and Altitudes of Triangles

Lesson Quiz

Holt Geometry

A median of a triangle is a segment whose

endpoints are a vertex of the triangle and the

midpoint of the opposite side.

Every triangle has three medians, and the medians

are concurrent.

The point of concurrency of the medians of a

triangle is the centroid of the triangle . The

centroid is always inside the triangle. The

centroid is also called the center of gravity

because it is the point where a triangular region

will balance.

Example 1A Using the Centroid to Find Segment

Lengths

In ?LMN, RL 21 and SQ 4. Find LS.

Centroid Thm.

Substitute 21 for RL.

LS 14

Simplify.

Example 1B Using the Centroid to Find Segment

Lengths

In ?LMN, RL 21 and SQ 4. Find NQ.

Centroid Thm.

NS SQ NQ

Seg. Add. Post.

Substitute 4 for SQ.

12 NQ

Multiply both sides by 3.

In ?JKL, ZW 7, and LX 8.1. Find KW.

Centroid Thm.

Substitute 7 for ZW.

Multiply both sides by 3.

KW 21

Check It Out! Example 1b

In ?JKL, ZW 7, and LX 8.1. Find LZ.

Centroid Thm.

Substitute 8.1 for LX.

Simplify.

LZ 5.4

Example 2 Problem-Solving Application

A sculptor is shaping a triangular piece of iron

that will balance on the point of a cone. At what

coordinates will the triangular region balance?

Example 2 Continued

The answer will be the coordinates of the

centroid of the triangle. The important

information is the location of the vertices,

Q(0,8), R(6, 4), and P(3, 0).

The centroid of the triangle is the point of

intersection of the three medians. So write the

equations for two medians and find their point of

intersection.

Example 2 Continued

Check It Out! Example 2

Find the average of the x-coordinates and the

average of the y-coordinates of the vertices of

?PQR. Make a conjecture about the centroid of a

triangle.

Check It Out! Example 2 Continued

The x-coordinates are 8, 6 and 10. The average

is 8. The y-coordinates are 6, 2 and 7. The

average is 5.

The x-coordinate of the centroid is the average

of the x-coordinates of the vertices of the ?,

and the y-coordinate of the centroid is the

average of the y-coordinates of the vertices of

the ?.

An altitude of a triangle is a perpendicular

segment from a vertex to the line containing the

opposite side. Every triangle has three

altitudes. An altitude can be inside, outside, or

on the triangle.

Example 3 Finding the Orthocenter

Find the orthocenter of ?XYZ with vertices X(3,

2), Y(3, 6), and Z(7, 1).

Step 1 Graph the triangle.

Example 3 Continued

Example 3 Continued

Point-slope form.

Add 6 to both sides.

Example 3 Continued

Step 4 Solve the system to find the coordinates

of the orthocenter.

Substitute 1 for y.

Subtract 10 from both sides.

6.75 x

The coordinates of the orthocenter are (6.75, 1).
