Exercise: Prove that the medians of a triangle with vertices , and intersect at the point

Solution:

Using the previous exercise we can write the medians of the triangle as

and

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
