Abstract

This paper presents the discovery of a hexagon result on Geometer’s Sketchpad and its generalization via proof for any 2n-gon. The result is : If ABCDEF is a hexagon with opposite sides parallel (not necessarily equal), then the respective centroids G, H, I, J, K and L of triangles ABC, BCD, CDE, DEF, EFA and FAB, form a hexagon with opposite sides both equal and parallel.
