Question 3.
Verify by drawing a diagram if the median and altitude of an isosceles triangle can be same. Solution: In the adjoining figure, ∆ABC is an isosceles triangle having AB = AC.
Draw its median AD. Now, with the help of a protractor, measure the ∠ADB.
We find that

∠ADB = 90°
∴ AD is a perpendicular to BC
Thus, \(\overline{A D}\) is the median as well as an altitude of ∆ABC.
