Step 1: Make sure that the midpoints of two sides of a triangle are connected (midsegment).

NOTE: U is the midpoint of TV* *and W is the midpoint of VS.

UW mid-segment △V*ST*.

Step 2: Find the length of the parallel side to the midsegment

NOTE: The midsegment is parallel to the third side and half its length.

Mid-segment (UW) = 2 * TS (Parallel side to UW )

EXAMPLE: ST = 2 * 70

ST = 140
