# In ∆ A B C , M and N are midpoints of A C ¯ and B C ¯ , respectively. If A B = 12.36 , how long is M N ¯ ? To determine

The length of MN¯.

Explanation

Approach:

The line segment that joins the midpoints of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and has length equal to one half the length of the third side.

Calculation:

Given,

M and N are the midpoints of the sides AC and BC respectively.

AB=12.36

The line segment that joins the midpoints of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and has length equal to one half the length of the third side
