Homework Help: Math

Posted by Luisa on Friday, October 12, 2007 at 8:32pm.

A triangle has vertices X(0,0), Y(4,4), and Z (8,-4).
a) Write an equation for each of the three medians
b) Recall that the centroid of a triangle is the point of intersection of the medians of the triangle. Use the equations from part a) to verify that (4,0) is the centroid of triangle XYZ.

I've been trying to solve this problem for over an hour and the equations I'm getting for part a) don't match the answers in tha back of my book, y=0, x-4=0, and x+y-4=0. I really need some help, please
