More side trisection triangle concurrency

Explore more: In the interactive sketch below, with P, Q, R, S, T, and U the midpoints of the shown segments, some additional properties of the same geometric configuration are shown. Drag any of A, B or C.
What do you observe? What additional conjectures can you make?


Additional properties

Additional challenge: Can you explain (prove) these further conjectures? What happens if sides are divided into four or more equal parts? Explore!
