Concise Selina Solutions for Class 9 maths Chapter 12 Midpoint and its Converse


The converse of the midpoint theorem states that” if a line is drawn through the midpoint of one side of a triangle, and parallel to the other side, it bisects the third side”. The theory of midpoint theorem is used in coordinate geometry, stating that the midpoint of the line segment is an average of the endpoints. Both the ‘x’ and the ‘y’ coordinates must be known for solving an equation using this theorem. The Mid- Point Theorem is also useful in the fields of calculus and algebra.
