in triangle ABC ,if D,E,F are the midpoints of sides BC,AC,AB respectively,,then prove that the centroid of the triangle DEF is same as the centroid of the triangle ABC (without using coordinate geometry)

Dear student

using midpoint theorem, the line joining the midpoint of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side

so in the given figure

EF is parallel to BC, DE to AB and DF to AC

so AEDF is parallelogram
diagonals bisect each other
so FH=HE
DH is the median of triangle DEF
similarly, EI and FJ are medians
these meet at G, which is also the centroid of triangle ABC

Too simple yrr

yes i know it thru cordinate geometry.
but i need proof thru other means like trigo or plane geometry
