    Draw height on each side and the point where they connect is the orthocentre?

    @laurity is correct. This site also has a very good explanation of the various "centers" of a triangle: http://www.mathopenref.com/triangleorthocenter.html

    the altitude is just the perpendicular height, e.g.: |dw:1327795736933:dw| You do that for all 3 sides, and the point where they intersect is the orthocenter
