# What is the general name of the point of concurrence for the three medians of a triangle?

To determine

To find:

The general name of the point of concurrence for the three medians of a triangle.

Explanation

Definition:

Centroid:

A centroid of a triangle is the point where the three medians of the triangle meet. A median of triangle is a lined segment from one vertex to the midpoint on the opposite of the triangle.

Given:

The general name of the point of concurrence for the three medians of a triangle.

Calculation:

By the above definition,

The point of concurrence for the three medians of a triangle is known as centroid of the triangle.

For example:

The point of concurrence C for the three medians is the centroid of the triangle in above

figure. M, N, and P are midpoints of the sides of ΔRST
