OK , Mr/ Calvin Lin i know 7 ways or 8, and they are : 1-Length's method 2-Cross product method 3-Box product 4-Slope method 5-Rank method 6-Buchhate formula 7-shoelace method (surerya's method) :) 8-reduce shoelace method .( but it is just abridgment to number (8)). and that is what i know ......

Here's another method. Show that \(A\) is the midpoint of line segment \(BC\).

actually i don't agree with you Mr/ jatin yadav, because doctor gave us seven ways to solve it and i still need three ways to complete ten :( .

I believe that there can not exist \(10\) ways for this one, and i can think of only 1, i.e. equating the direction cosines of the line segments.

What have you tried?

Since you want 10 ways, how many have you already come up with? If you list them out, others will be more likely to chime in with different approaches that they have used.
