Maths Triangle and Its Properties part 3 (Median of Triangle) CBSE Class 7 Mathematics VII

## TL;DR

Learn how to divide a triangular cake into six equal pieces using medians, which are line segments that join a vertex of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side.

## Key Insights

• 🫥 Medians are line segments that join a vertex of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side.
• 🔺 Drawing one median in a triangle divides it into two equal triangles with the same area.
• 🔺 A triangle can have a maximum of three medians, one starting from each vertex.
• 🥞 Dividing a triangular cake into six equal pieces can be achieved by drawing three medians.
• 🥞 Each piece of the triangular cake is also a triangle.
• 🕰️ The area of each of the six triangular pieces is the same.
• 📐 Medians are used to achieve equal division and distribution of area in triangular shapes.

### Q: What are medians in a triangle?

Medians are line segments that connect a vertex of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side. They divide the triangle into two equal triangles.

### Q: How many medians can be present in a triangle?

There can be a maximum of three medians in a triangle, one starting from each vertex.

### Q: What is the purpose of drawing medians in a triangle?

Drawing medians in a triangle divides it into two equal triangles. The areas of these triangles will be the same.

### Q: How were the six equal pieces achieved in the triangular cake?

By drawing three medians in the triangular cake, it can be divided into six equal triangular pieces, ensuring each piece has the same area.

## Summary & Key Takeaways

• Triangular chocolate cake needs to be divided into six equal pieces using medians.

• Medians are line segments that join a vertex of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side.

• Each piece of the triangular cake is also a triangle.
