In a rectangular triangle we marked the same points as in last worksheet. Explore the barycentric coordinates of these points. You can also drag the points B and C and change the ratio of the lengths of the sides of the triangle.

The barycentrisc coordinates of P don't depend on the form of the triangle, but only on the relative distances of P to the verticles A, B and C. Each remarkable point in a triangle has got its typical barycentric coordinates.
