## Renee99 3 years ago In which figure is point S the orthocenter of triangle PQR?

1. Renee99

2. Renee99

A, B, C or D...

3. Renee99

I think it's the last one...

4. abdul_shabeer

I think None of the above

5. Renee99

This question is really confusing, I think it's the last one but I really don't know

6. TheMind

none

7. uzumakhi

i think its D

8. Renee99

none? really? lol what do u think would be the best answer to put?

9. abdul_shabeer

Last one is centroid. Do you know what is orthocentre?

10. Renee99

yeah, It's the point where all three altitudes of a triangle intersect, right?

11. Renee99

so... which one is it?

12. ganeshie8

centroid - medians (CM) orthocenter - altitudes (OA)

13. Renee99

so, would it be D?

14. Renee99

ohh wait...

15. ganeshie8

ok

16. Renee99

actually, yeah I think im sticking with D as my answer, is that right?

17. ganeshie8

hmm think again... those TICK marks indicate they MEDAINS are drawnn to those sides

18. Renee99

okay... go on

19. ganeshie8

20. ganeshie8

you can recognize altitudes by that little SQUARE box there

21. Renee99

B then?

22. ganeshie8

and orthocenter is meeting point of Altitides... yep!!!!! you got it.. .good work :)

23. Renee99

ohh I see, okay... yay! thanks for ur help explaining that to me :)

24. ganeshie8

np :)

25. abdul_shabeer

In B point S is not the orthocentre

26. abdul_shabeer

Point R is the orthocentre

27. Renee99

okay, so what is the right one?

28. abdul_shabeer

None

29. Renee99

there has to be... grrr I hate typo's they make it so difficult!

30. abdul_shabeer

Then in B point R should be S

31. Renee99

okay, so what do u think I should put as my answer?

32. ganeshie8

there are not typos. R is the vertex of triangle. S is the orthocenter. B is the answer.

33. Renee99

yeah, ur right, people are just confusing me right now, lol

34. ganeshie8

sorry i had to go out for some work.. .

35. Renee99

I went straight from geometry to chemistry and my mind feels like its about to explode... lol

36. Renee99

Its np thanks for ur help again :)

37. ganeshie8

lol too much work ha.. np :)

38. Renee99

yeah, tell me about it lol

39. ganeshie8

40. Renee99
