# When is the orthocenter inside on or outside of the triangle?

Inside: acute angled triangleOn: right angled triangle

Outside: obtuse angled triangle.

### Is the orthocenter of a triangle always inside the triangle?

A Triangle's Orthocenter No, it can be outside the triangle.

### The orthocenter of a triangle may lie outside the triangle since?

The orthocenter is the point where the altitudes of a triangle intersect. An orthocenter lies outside of a triangle only when the triangle is obtuse. If a triangle is acute, the orthocenter lies inside of the triangle.

### If a triangle is obtuse where is the orthocenter of the triangle found?

If a triangle is obtuse, the orthocenter of the triangle actually lies outside of the triangle. If the triangle is acute, the orthocenter of the triangle lies on the inside of the triangle

### How do you find orthocenter?

You find the orthocenter by constructing the altitudes from the vertices in a triangle. If the triangle is obtuse, the orthocenter will fall outside the triangle. If the triangle is acute, the orthocenter will fall on the inside of the triangle. If the triangle is a right triangle, the orthocenter will lie on a vertix.

### What may fall outside a triangle?

The orthocenter may fall outside of a triangle. The orthocenter usually lies within the inside the triangle. However this is only the case if the triangle is acute.

### Where can the orthocenter be found in relation to the triangle?

inside-acute,on the triangle-right,outside-obtuse

### What type of triangle has its orthocenter outside of the triangle?

The orthocenter of a triangle is found at the intersection of the three altitudes of the triangle. Obtuse triangles contain altitudes which are found outside of the triangle, meaning their orthocenter must be outside of the triangle as well.

### Where is the orthocenter on an obtuse triangle?

An orthocenter on an obtuse triangle actually lies outside of the triangle. In an acute triangle, the orthocenter lies within the triangle.

### Do the altidudes of a triangle always meet in the interior of the triangle?

In a obtuse triangle, the point of concurrency, where multiple lines meet, of the altitudes, called the orthocenter, is outside the triangle. In a right angle, the orthocenter lies on the vertex (corner) of the right angle. In an acute angle, the orthocenter lies inside the triangle.

### The orthocenter of a triangle may lie outside the triangle since the altitude may not intersect any side of the triangle?

The orthocenter of a triangle may lie outside the triangle because an altitude does not necessarily intersect the sides of the triangle.

### What do you call the intersection of the 3 altitudes of a trialgle?

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 an orthocentre and where it is located for an obtuse right and a right angled triangles?

An obtuse angled triangle.

### When is the point of concurrency outside a triangle?

When you have and obtuse triangle and you are trying to find the Orthocenter

### If an orthocenter lies inside of a triangle then the triangle must be?

It must be acute angled.

### Where is the orthocenter in an obtuse triangle?

Hi, The orthocenter in an obtuse triangle is outside. To make this happen the altitude lines have to be extended so they cross. Hope this answers your question!

### The orthocenter of a triangle may lie outside the triangle because the altitude does not necessairly intersect the of the triangle?

The orthocenter of a triangle may lie outside the triangle since the ___altitude___ may not intersect any side of the triangle. * * * * * No. One of the altitudes must intersect the side opposite it and so it is not correct to say ANY side of the triangle.

### The orthocenter of a triangle may lie outside the triangle since the may not intersect any side of the triangle?

True for an obtuse triangle!

### In which type of triangle does a orthocenter of the triangle fall outside the triangle?

### What are the properties the orthocenter of a triangle?

Construct a scalene triangle and then from each of its vertices draw a straight line that is perpendicular to its opposite side and where these 3 straight lines intersect it is the orthocenter of the triangle. The position of the orthocenter can vary depending on what type of triangle it.

### 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.

### The orthocenter of a triangle may lie outside the triangle because the altitude does not necessairly intersect the?

My daughter's math teacher recommended the following site, which was enormously helpful for her. Here's a link to the 'orthocenter' topic, and you can find a bunch of other math topic videos there. It is all free. Hope it will help. http://www.brightstorm.com/d/math/s/geometry/u/constructions/t/constructing-the-orthocenter

### Where is the orthocenter of a right triangle located?

When the triangle is right, the orthocenter is the polygon vertex of the right angle. Intuitively this makes sense because the orthocenter is where the altitudes intersect. Hence, in a right triangle, the vertex of the right angle is where you would expect the altitudes to meet, at 90 degrees, where the legs of the right triangle are perpendicular.

### Which type of triangle would have a orthocenter that is one of the vertices of the triangle?

a right triangle

### What is the orthocenter of a triangle?

The orthocenter of a triangle is the point where the three altitudes of the triangle intersect. An altitude extends from a vertex (i.e. corner of the triangle) to the side opposite of it, and is perpendicular either to the side of the triangle, or to its extension. The three altitudes of a triangle are always concurrent (intersect at the same point). This point is known as the orthocenter, and always falls on the Euler Line… Read More

### Name all types of triangles for which the point of concurrency is inside the triangle?

The answer depends on what point of concurrency you are referring to. There are four segments you could be talking about in triangles. They intersect in different places in different triangles. Medians--segments from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side. In acute, right and obtuse triangles, the point of concurrency of the medians (centroid) is inside the triangle. Altitudes--perpendicular segments from a vertex to a line containing the opposite side. In an acute… Read More

### What is a Euler Line?

### What is the equation for orthocenter?

The orthocentre of a triangle is the point at which the altitudes meet.

### Is the orthocenter the point shared by the angle bisectors of a triangle?

Sometimes. If the triangle is an equilateral triangle, then yes. If the triangle has two sides of equal length, then the bisector passing through the point connecting the two sides of equal length will share the orthocenter. If all three sides have different lengths, then none of the bisectors of a triangle will share (pass through) the orthcenter. The definition of the orthocenter is: The point where the three altitudes of a triangle intersect. (An… Read More

### What is the intersection of three angle bisectors of a triangle called?

Orthocenter My improvement: The three angle bisectors will intersect at a point called the incenter. At this point it also the center of the largest possible circle within the triangle. Since a circle has a center point, this point within the triangle is called the incenter. The three heights of a triangle will meet at a special point called the orthocenter.
