# Geometry Triangle Question!

In triangle ACE, G is the centroid and BE=9. Find BG and GE.

(segments BE and AD cross in the middle of the triangle, BE overlaps AD and C is at the top of the triangle, and A is on the left corner and E is on the right)

Thank You So Much!!! ^0^

1. If you check your definition of the centroid, you will find that it is 2/3 of the way from each vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side.

So, if EB is 9, how far is 2/3 of the way from E to B?
