this is geometry ....

OpenStudy (dumbcow):

Its False the orthocenter is where the perpendicular bisectors meet. the incenter is where the medians of the triangle meet

OpenStudy (radar):

False, it is the angle bisectors (half angles) that intersect at the incenter.

OpenStudy (dumbcow):

yep, just looked it up always get those mixed up

OpenStudy (radar):

I thought you had it right, I was directing that to the asker lol, what did you mean by the medians? @dumbcow

OpenStudy (dumbcow):

well, yes the answer is false but my definition of the incenter was incorrect. a median is the line going from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side

OpenStudy (radar):

O.K. I just looked it up that defines the centroid, which itself has some very interesting characteristics. Have a nice day.
