## What is the Construction?

In this construction, I begin with a point that is the centroid of SOME triangle.
Knowing that the centroid divides the median in a 2:1 ratio, and that one end of the median is the midpoint of one of the sides of the triangle, I repeatedly use the Reflect in a Point tool to find the points needed in the construction.
