What is the median of an isosceles triangle is the same segment in the triangle?

Altitude APEXX


In an isosceles triangle the altitude and median are?

B. The same segment. ~Ãpex


Can the median and altitude of a triangle meet in the same line segment?

Yes, if the triangle is isosceles or equilateral.


Can the median of an equilateral triangle be longer than its altitude?

For the equilateral triangle in Euclidean space(i.e, the triangles you see in general) median is the same as its altitude. So, both are of equal length.


What median of an isosceles triangle is the same segment in the triangle as the leg bisector hypotenuse altitude?

It is the median which divides the side which is not one of the equal sides.


Is median and the altitude of a triangle the same?

The median is a line from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite line and an altitude is a line from a vertex to the opposite line which is perpendicular to the line. These are NOT the same thing in most triangles. The only time they could be the same is in an equilateral triangle.


Is this true If a median an altitude and an angle bisector are the same segment in a triangle the triangle is scalene?

No, it's not true.


When is a median and an altitude the same segment?

In an isosceles or equilateral triangle, when from the vertex that is different from the others.


How do you make a model of median and altitude of a triangle?

median intersect each other at a point inside triangle and altitude intrsect eachother at apoint outside triangle


If a median of a triangle is also an altitude of a triangle then is the triangle isosceles?

Yes


A segment that connects a vertex of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side?

median or altitude * * * * * Median: Yes Altitude: No.


Can the altitude from the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle be the median?

If the triangle is really isosceles, and it's not lying on one of the equal sides, then the altitude is always a median.
