of the Centroid of a Triangle
- It is formed by the intersection of the medians.
- It is one of the points of concurrency of a triangle.
- It is always located inside the triangle (like the incenter, another one of the triangle's concurrent points)
- The centroid divides each median in a ratio of 2:1. In other words, the centroid will always be 2/3 of the way along any given median. See bottom set of pictures.
