# Stewart's Theorem ( for triangle's medians)

## Description

Stewart’s theorem yields a relation between the length of the sides of the triangle and the length of a cevian of the triangle. A cevian is any line segment in a triangle with one endpoint on a vertex of the triangle and the other endpoint on the opposite side.If the cevian happens to be a median, its length can be determined by the length of the triangle’s sides

Related formulas## Variables

b | Length of one of the sides of the triangle (m) |

c | Length of another side of the triangle ( adjacent to b) (m) |

d | Length of the median to the side a (m) |

a | Length of the third side of the triangle ( the base of the triangle) (m) |
