### 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.
