The point where the three altitudes of a triangle intersect is called the orthocenter. This can be located either inside or outside of the triangle.

What is The incenter of a triangle falls outside of its triangle?

The incenter of a triangle is the point at which the 3 medians (lines from the vertex to the middle of the side opposite the vertex) of the triangle intersect. Per it's definition, the incenter cannot ever fall outside the triangle. On the other hand, the orthocenter (intersection of the altitudes) can. It does so whenever the triangle is obtuse.

What does intersection mean in math?

It means meet. Point of intersection is the point where shapes or lines meet. With regard to sets, the intersection of two sets is the set of elements that are common to both sets. For example, the intersection of the set of the first five whole numbers and the set of the first five odd numbers is the set of the first three odd numbers. This is expressed as {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} ∩ {1, 3, 5, 7, 9} = {1, 3, 5}
