I am pretty sure R does not equal 2/3 ha or 1/3 ha, however, I am not sure why that is. Why isn’t it the same, or if it is, why?

What splits the ha into this ratio? If i had a pyramid, would its height divide the height of the base like this?

What do you know about the intersection of the medians of a triangle?

You have not said what you are even talking about. It is quite obvious that this is not generally true for inscribed triangles. Is this triangle supposed to be equilateral or something?
