What is the orthocentre of a triangle?
Answer: The orthocenter is the intersection point of all three altitudes of a triangle.
Let us explore more about the orthocentre of a triangle.
The orthocenter is that point where all three altitudes of a triangle intersect.
The term "ortho" means "right." Hence, orthocenter indicates the center of all the right angles from the vertices to the opposite sides i.e., the altitudes.
- The orthocenter of a triangle is denoted by H.
- By the position of the orthocenter, we can understand the nature of the given triangle.
- An orthocenter divides an altitude into different parts. The product of the lengths of all these parts is equivalent for all three perpendiculars.
Thus, we have seen the orthocentre and its properties.
