# Similarity of Medians in Triangles

How to solve the similarity of medians in triangles problems: definition, example, and its solution.

## Definition

The median of a triangle is a line segment

that starts from the vertex

and ends at the midpoint of the opposite side.

## Example

If two triangles are similar,

then their medians are proportional.

So the medians and the sides are proportional:

4 / *x* = 5 / 7.
