# Medians Of a Triangle

In a triangle, a **median** is a line joining a vertex with the mid-point of the opposite side.
Every triangle have 3 medians. They are standard notated as AM_{a}, BM_{b} and CM_{c}.
The three medians meet at one point called *centroid*. It is usually notated with G.

The G point separates each into segments in ratio 2:1 i.e.:

AG:GM

_{a}= BG:GM_{b}= CG:GM_{c}= 2 : 1### Median length formulas

The standard notation for the length of medians AM_{a}, BM_{b}, CM_{c}
is m_{a}, m_{b}, m_{c}
