Vertices of triangle ABC are A(2a,0), B(2b,0), C(0,2).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) Find the equations of the sides (check, did that)

AB: y=0

AC: x+ay=2a

BC: x+by=2b

I'm having trouble with b)

Show that the equations of the medians are: x+(2a-b)y=2a, x+(2b-a)y=2b, 2x+(a+b)y=2(a+b)

Ok, they're not referring to the midpoints of AB, AC, and BC? I think that's where my mistake is. The median is point of intersection where a line intersects each line at each line's midpoint and meets at a common center point inside the triangle?
