A midsegment of a triangle measures 40 m. What is the length of the corresponding base of the triangle?

    Corresponding base of the triangle is ##80## m.

    A mid-segment of a triangle is a segment connecting the midpoints of two sides of a triangle. This segment has two special properties.

    (1) It is always parallel to the corresponding side, and

    (2) the length of the mid-segment is half the length of the corresponding side.

    As midsegment of a triangle measures ##40## m,

    corresponding base of the triangle is ##40xx2=80## m.
