This question is related to one of my previous questions.
The answer to that question included a theorem: "The median on the hypotenuse of a right triangle equals one-half the hypotenuse".
When I wrote the answer out and showed it a friend of mine, he basically asked me how I knew that the theorem was true, and if the theorem had a name.
So, my question:
-Does this theorem have a name?
-If not, what would be the best way to describe it during a math test? Or is it better to write out the full prove every time?
