# What is the orthocentre of a triangle?

A polygon with three vertices and three edges is called a triangle. The orthocenter is that point where all the three altitudes of a triangle intersect.

## Answer: The orthocenter is the intersection point of all three altitudes of a triangle.

Let us explore more about the orthocentre of a triangle.

**Explanation:**

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.
