a midsegment of a triangle

I think it's called a vertice, and there are 3 vertices in a triangle. -- WRONGCORRECTION- it is NOT called a vertice. A vertice is each angle point, there ARE three vertices in a triangle but they the point of each angle.Now, a segment connecting the midpoints of two sides of a triangle is called a mid-segment. There are three mid-segments in a triangle.Go here for more info* http://regentsprep.org/Regents/math/geometry/GP10/MidLineL.htm *

Triangle Midpoint Theorem: The line segment connecting the midpoints of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and is congruent to one half of the third side.

It is the vertex

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

A bimedian is a line which joins the midpoints of opposite sides of a quadrilateral or tetrahedron.

The midpoint theorem says the following: In any triangle the segment joining the midpoints of the 2 sides of the triangle will be parallel to the third side and equal to half of it
