Exercise: Prove that the medians of a triangle with vertices , and intersect at the point
Using the previous exercise we can write the medians of the triangle as
These segments intersect if and only if there are real numbers in the interval [0,1] such that
It's clear that is the unique solution to this system so the point of intersection is
