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

A segment that connects two midpoints of a polygon.
every triangle has three midsegments because every triangle has three sides
a triangle can have as many midsegments as you put in that particular triangle
The midsegment is the average of the top base and bottom base. Take B1+B2 and divide by 2.
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… what Algebra....... what you do is take your length 90 and midsegment 85 into a prob like this (90+X)/2=85 times by two on both sides to cancel out the two. after that you end up with 90+X=85 next you have to "isolate" the X by subtracting 90 from both sides you would get 90+X=85 -90 -90 to get X=-5 the other side would be -5 so it doesnt work to check it plug the number back into the equation (90+-5)/2=85
A midsegment of a triangle is parallel to the side of the triangle, and it's length is half the length of that side
Yes. The midsection is equal to the average of the two bases.
Answer: Another Triangle
It is the average of the bases.
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.
4, and the midsegments always form a parallelogram
The midsegments of a triangle are the midpoints of the three sides 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 …lines!
