    Re: Geometry Proof. Help!!!

    It looks to me like that is immediate from the definition of "median". What definition of "median" are you using?

    Here is my general suggestion: definitions in mathematics are "working" definitions- you use the precise words of definitions in proofs and other problem solving. Always learn the precise definitions of words, not just a general idea of what they mean!
