# Chapter 5 - Relationships Within Triangles - 5-4 Medians and Altitudes - Practice and Problem-Solving Exercises - Page 312: 12

Therefore, the red segment is neither a median nor an altitude.

#### Work Step by Step

The red segment is not a median because it is not coming from one of the vertices of the triangle, although it does split $\overline{AB}$ into two congruent segments. The red segment is not an altitude either because although it is perpendicular to $\overline{AB}$, it is not originating from one of the vertices of the triangle.
