Triangle Midsegment Properties - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

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. Another important set of polygon midsegment properties to be familiar with are trapezoid midsegment properties.
