| **In rectangular ABC (C = 90 °) BC = 9. The medians of the triangle meet at point O, OB = 10. Find the area of triangle ABC.**

The medians of the triangle, at the point of their intersection, are divided in the ratio of 2/1, starting from the top, then OB = 2 * OM.

ОМ = ОВ / 2 = 10/2 = 5 cm, then ВМ = ОВ + ОМ = 10 + 5 = 15 cm.

From the right-angled triangle of the BCM, according to the Pythagorean theorem, we determine the length of the CM leg.

CM ^ 2 = BM ^ 2 – BC ^ 2 = 225 – 81 = 144.

CM = 12 cm.

Since BM is the median, then AM = CM = 12 cm, then AC = 2 * CM = 2 * 12 = 24 cm.

Determine the area of the triangle ABC.

Savs = AC * BC / 2 = 24 * 9/2 = 108 cm2.

Answer: The area of the triangle is 108 cm2.
