## What is the Midsegment of an angle?

Recall that a midsegment is a line that connects the midpoints of two sides of a triangle, and is parallel to the third side.

## Is the Midsegment half of the base?

The midsegment is one-half the length of the base.

How do you find the length of the Midsegment in a triangle?

The Midsegment Theorem states that the midsegment connecting the midpoints of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side of the triangle, and the length of this midsegment is half the length of the third side.

What is the Midsegment of a triangle parallel to?

A midsegment is the line segment connecting the midpoints of two sides of a triangle. Since a triangle has three sides, each triangle has three midsegments. A triangle midsegment is parallel to the third side of the triangle and is half of the length of the third side.

### What is the length of the Midsegment AB?

The length of the midsegment is the sum of the two bases divided by 2. Remember that the bases of a trapezoid are the two parallel sides.

### How many midsegments does a triangle have?

Since triangles have three sides, they can have three midsegments. You can join any two sides at their midpoints. One midsegment is one-half the length of the base (the third side not involved in the creation of the midsegment). That is only one interesting feature.

What are the special segments of a triangle?

Angle bisector

• Perpendicular bisector
• Median
• Altitude
• How to find segment lengths of a triangle?

– a + b > c = 17 > 5 – a + c > b = 12 > 10 – b + c > a = 15 > 7

#### How do you name segments in a triangle?

– A line can be named either using two points on the line (for example, ↔AB ) or simply by a letter, usually lowercase (for example, line m ). – A segment is named by its two endpoints, for example, ¯AB . – A ray is named using its endpoint first, and then any other point on the ray (for example, →BA ).
