The median to the hypotenuse of a right triangle that is 12 inches in length is 6 inches.

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.

A median of a triangle is a line from a vertex of the triangle to the midpoint of the side opposite that vertex.

A median divides any triangle in half.

Yes.

It depends on what other information you have. Knowing the lengths of two sides of a triangle is not enough to calculate the third. You need to have some further information: and angle, the area, the length of an altitude or a median.

A median of a triangle is a line from a vertex of the triangle to the midpoint of the side opposite that vertex.

The median of a triangle cannot be considered as a base of that triangle.

It is not possible to answer the question since it is hopelessly underspecified and does not provide enough information.what information about the triangle is known? All three side lengths, base angle and base side, base angle and leg, apex angle and base, apex angle and leg? These could influence the form of the answer.is the information about the triangle in terms of analytical geometry (coordinates of points and equations of lines) or in some other form?which median? The median from the apex or one of the isosceles medians?what aspect of the median is the formula supposed to give? Its length, equation?

The median of a triangle bisects its side

Each median divides the area of a triangle into halves.

You can find it by using the Pythagorean theorem if you know the side and the base of triangle. In an isosceles triangle the median is also the altitude. The formula is: (The measure of the side length)^2 - (The measure of the one half of the base length )^2 = (The measure of the altitude)^2. Find the square root of the result that you'll have the measure of the altitude.
