What is the length of ?

GD =

10.5

Points S, U, and T are the midpoints of the sides of PQR.

Which statements are correct? Check all that apply.

1/2QP = UT SU ∥ RP

To prove part of the triangle midsegment theorem using the diagram, which statement must be shown?

The length of GH is half the length of KL.

What is the length of BC?

From the markings on the diagram, we can tell E is the midpoint of BC and __ is the midpoint of AC

We can apply the _____________________ theorem: ED = BA.

Substituting in the expressions for the lengths and solving for x, we get x = __.

Now, since BE = x, then BC = __

Consider the paragraph proof.

Given: D is the midpoint of AB, and E is the midpoint of AC.
Prove:DE = BC

It is given that D is the midpoint of AB and E is the midpoint of AC. To prove that DE is half the length of BC, the distance formula, d = , can be used to determine the lengths of the two segments. The length of BC can be determined with the equation BC = , which simplifies to 2a. The length of DE can be determined with the equation DE = , which simplifies to ________. Therefore, BC is twice DE, and DE is half BC.

Which is the missing information in the proof?
