Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The Euler Line of the triangle starts at the circumcenter, goes through the centroid, to the orthocenter... It's a start.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's apparently a purely geometric proof. http://planetmath.org/encyclopedia/EulerLineProof.html

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I had formulas for centroid, orthocenter, and circumcenter of a scalene triangle based upon the vertexes, I could in theory show the ratio of the distances is always 1/2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is what I have so far, since there is no restrictions to define a scalene other than different angles/side lenths...a right scalene should prove it just as well.... i used the 345

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if I could prove that the line bisects the hypot at a right angle, its solved lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Unfortunately, I think proof need to be more general than 'it works for a RA with these sides => it works for all' But I hate geometry, so meh.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats true, proofs need to be more rigorous, but I aint to good with that part ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I get congruent triangles like this..... but is there a theorum which states that the apex of a triangle within an rectangle has a ratio of sides equal to the distance between the 2 top corners?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since we have 2 congruent triangles with equal angles A and B, then the ration of 50/3 sinB would match 25/3 sinB to be true.
