The intersection of the tree medians of the triangle is called CENTROID. If a triangle could have mass, the centroid would be the balancing centre of the triangle. This point is also called the MEDIAN POINT.

The median of a triangle is a line that links the vertex with the middle of the opposite side of the triangle.
