Think about it. These are the sides of the triangle that are intersecting.

Well would the sides of the triangle be on the inside of the triangle?
okdutchman7
  • okdutchman7
The sides can't be on the inside or the outside of the triangle. They have to be on the triangle.

So it would be "C"?

I really need to know as I am retaking the test tomorrow. 0_0

Could you please give me a medal?

But wait? Would it not be B because a perpendicular bisector is a line segment that intersect in the middle of the triangle so would it not be on the triangle AND inside the triangle?
okdutchman7
  • okdutchman7
No because the sides of the triangle could not be inside the triangle

But its not talking about the sides of the triangle its talking about the perpendicular bisectors ON the sides of the triangle.
okdutchman7
  • okdutchman7
The perpendicular bisectors are the two sides of a right triangle that form the right angle.

Do you understand now?

They are the only parts of a triangle that are perpendicular to each other

http://hotmath.com/hotmath_help/topics/bisectors-in-a-triangle/f_triangle_bisectors_1.gif This is a perpendicular bisector. It is called this because it is a perpendicular line that bisects a side of a triangle into 2.

Okay, I was confused by your terminology. (My book taught it differently) In that case the answer would be that it intersects inside and on the triangle

Ok. Ill give you your medal but can you give me one in return?
okdutchman7
  • okdutchman7
Sure

  • lightn1ng
Yay, my first medal.
