Find the equation of the median of triangle ABC through B if A= (2,4) B= (2,-3) C= (-4,-2) are the vertices.

I tried answering it and got the equation as 2x-3y=8=0 .

Is this the right answer?

DEAR SUHAIL,


MEDIAN IS A LINE SEGMENT PASSING THROUGH A VERTEX AND TO THE MIS POINT OF OPPOSITE LINE


THEREFORE THE EQUATION MUST PASS THROUGH B(2,-3)


AND ALSO MID POINT OF LINE SEGMENT BETWEEN POINTS (2,4) AND (-4,-2) THAT IS (-2, 1)


IT IS CLEAR THAT YOUR EQUATION DOES NOT SATISFY THE POINTS


THE CORRECT EQUATION CAN BE CALCULATED USING TWO POINT FORM PASSING THROUGH (2,-3)


AND (-2,1)


THE EQUATION IS x+y=-1


BEST OF LUCK

Median: line passing through vertex and mnidpoint of opposite side


Eqn of median through A is 13x-6y=2


Eqn of median through B is 4x+3y+1=0


Eqn of median through C is 5x-12y=4
