Using The Geometer’s Sketchpad®:
Plot the points A(2, 6) and B(10, 0). Construct the line segment AB and the midpoint of AB.
Then, construct a perpendicular line through the midpoint. Select the perpendicular line, and
choose Equation from the Measure menu.
Using Cabri® Jr.:
Choose Segment from the F2 menu, and plot the endpoints at points (2, 6) and (10, 0). Use
Coord. & Eq. from the F5 menu to check the placement of the endpoints, and adjust them if
necessary. Select the line segment, and choose Midpoint from the F3 menu. Choose Perp. from
the F3 menu, and construct the perpendicular line through the midpoint. Then, choose Coord. &
Eq. again to display the equation of the line.

the original triangle. Shade the centre triangle. For each of the other three triangles, repeat the
process of joining the midpoints to form smaller similar triangles, and shade the centre triangle.
The procedure works with any triangle. The area relationships are the same as shown in question
20 since the line segment joining the midpoints of two sides of any triangle is half the length of
the third side.

original triangle.
