# In ,D is the mid-point of .

is __________.

PD is ___________.

Is QM = MR?

Answer :

In the above given question, we have

Also, given that:

D is the mid-point of QR

Therefore,

PM is altitude

**(As Pm is perpendicular to the side BC of triangle)**

Also,

PD is Median

**(As median is the line which intersects the mid-point of the opposite side)**

And,

QM MR

**If the median and altitude are at the same point, only then QM = MR, but in above triangle, this is not the case.**
