    Its False the orthocenter is where the perpendicular bisectors meet. the incenter is where the medians of the triangle meet

    False, it is the angle bisectors (half angles) that intersect at the incenter.

    well, yes the answer is false but my definition of the incenter was incorrect. a median is the line going from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side

    O.K. I just looked it up that defines the centroid, which itself has some very interesting characteristics. Have a nice day.
