Hey lemaire92.

Could you model this as a centre of mass (COM) problem by distributing the mass evenly throughout the triangle (i.e. mass(x,y) = c for some constant c) and do it that way? - Apr 23rd 2013, 08:48 PMSorobanRe: undefined slope in the median of a centroid

Find the intersection of the other two medians.
