Term

Definition

Any point on a perpendicular bisector is ___________ from the endpoints of the side to which it is perpendicular. 


Term

Definition
The point where the three perpendicular bisectors meet; it is the center of a circle that touches all of the triangle's vertices. 


Term

Term

Definition
Any point on an angle bisector is ___________ from the sides of the angle it bisects. 


Term

Definition
The point where the three angle bisectors meet; it is the center of a circle that is tangent (just barely touches) all of the triangle's sides. 


Term

Definition

Term

Definition
The point where the three medians meet; it is the balance point of the triangle. 


Term

Definition
The distance from any vertex of a triangle to the centroid is __________ (fraction) of the total length of the median. 


Term

Definition
A segment that has one endpoint at the vertex of a triangle. The segment extends to the vertex's opposite side and intersects it at a 90degree angle. It represents the height of a triangle. 


Term
