## Centroid of a Triangle

1. Create the midpoint of each side of the triangle.
2. Create a line segment from each vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side of the triangle.
This segment is called the median.
You should note that all of these line segments intersect at a single point. Label this point O.
This point is called the centroid of the triangle.
