If the midsegment of a triangle is 5x plus 3 and the base is 27 what is the measure of the midsegment?

Would you like to merge this question into it?

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

The length of a midsegment is half that of the parallel side of the triangle; assuming the midsegment is parallel to the [given] base, then its length is 27 ÷ 2=13.5 units.

What is a midsegment?

A segment that connects two midpoints of a polygon.

How many midsegments does every triangle have?

every triangle has three midsegments because every triangle has three sides

Four

How many midsegments does a triangle have?

a triangle can have as many midsegments as you put in that particular triangle

How do you find the midsegment of a trapezoid?

The midsegment is the average of the top base and bottom base. Take B1+B2 and divide by 2.

What is the midsegment formula?

Median of a trapezoid is a line segment found on the midpoint ofthe legs of a trapezoid. It is also known as mid-line ormid-segment. Its basic formula is AB + CD divided by 2.

If a trapezoid has a base measure of 90 and a midsegment length of 85 what is the measure of the other base?

The Trapezoid midsegment conjecture- the midsegment of a trapezoid is parallel to the bases and is equal to the length to the average of the lengths of the bases. This is Some

How do you find the midsegment of a triangle?

A midsegment of a triangle is parallel to the side of the triangle, and it's length is half the length of that side

Is the midsegment in a trapezoid equal in length to the average of two bases?

Yes. The midsection is equal to the average of the two bases.

The length of a midsegment of a trapezoid is the of the lengths of the bases?

It is the average of the bases.

another triangle

Yes

How do you find the length of the midsegment of a trapezoid?

You must first know the lengths of the top and bottom of the trapezoid. At this point, you must average those lengths and that is your midsegment length.

What is a midsegment of quadrilateral?

4, and the midsegments always form a parallelogram

What is Midsegment of triangles?

The midsegments of a triangle are the midpoints of the three sides of the triangle..

What is the midsegment of a triangle to the opposite side of the triangle?

The question does not make any sense. A "midsegment" suggests the mid part (or point) of a line. But a triangle cannot have a line opposite to a line since it has only three
