Yes, if the triangle is isosceles or equilateral.

No, it's not true.

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

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

An isosceles or an equilateral triangle perhaps?

Yes, if the triangle is isosceles or equilateral.

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.

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

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.

Yes

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