The length of a midsegment is half that of the parallel side of the triangle; assuming the midsegment is parallel to the [given] base, then its length is 27 ÷ 2 = 13.5 units.

# What is a midsegment?

A segment that connects two midpoints of a polygon.

# How many midsegments does every triangle have?

every triangle has three midsegments because every triangle has three sides

Four

# How many midsegments does a triangle have?

a triangle can have as many midsegments as you put in that particular triangle

# How do you find the midsegment of a trapezoid?

The midsegment is the average of the top base and bottom base. Take B1+B2 and divide by 2.

# What is the midsegment formula?

Median of a trapezoid is a line segment found on the midpoint ofthe legs of a trapezoid. It is also known as mid-line ormid-segment. Its basic formula is AB + CD divided by 2.

# If a trapezoid has a base measure of 90 and a midsegment length of 85 what is the measure of the other base?

The Trapezoid midsegment conjecture- the midsegment of a trapezoid is parallel to the bases and is equal to the length to the average of the lengths of the bases. This is Some

# How do you find the midsegment of a triangle?

A midsegment of a triangle is parallel to the side of the triangle, and it's length is half the length of that side

# Is the midsegment in a trapezoid equal in length to the average of two bases?

Yes. The midsection is equal to the average of the two bases.

# The length of a midsegment of a trapezoid is the of the lengths of the bases?

It is the average of the bases.

another triangle

Yes

# How do you find the length of the midsegment of a trapezoid?

You must first know the lengths of the top and bottom of the trapezoid. At this point, you must average those lengths and that is your midsegment length.

# What is a midsegment of quadrilateral?

4, and the midsegments always form a parallelogram

# What is Midsegment of triangles?

The midsegments of a triangle are the midpoints of the three sides of the triangle..

# What is the midsegment of a triangle to the opposite side of the triangle?

The question does not make any sense. A "midsegment" suggests the mid part (or point) of a line. But a triangle cannot have a line opposite to a line since it has only three
