# Special Segments in Triangles

## 10 terms

### Median

A segment that goes from a vertex of a triangle to the midpoint of the side opposite of that vertex

### Perpendicular bisector

A line that goes through the midpoint of a side triangle and is perpendicular to that side

### Altitude

A segment that goes from a vertex and is perpendicular to the side opposite the vertex

### Angle bisector

A segment of a triangle that bisects an angle of the triangle

### Point of concurrency

The point where two or more lines intersect

### Orthocenter

The intersection of the 3 altitudes of a triangle

### Centroid

The intersection of the 3 medians of a triangle

### Centroid

Located 2/3 the distance from each vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side

### Circumcenter

Where the 3 perpendicular bisectors intersect in a triangle. Equidistant from the vertices of the triangle

### Incenter

The intersection of the 3 angle bisectors. The incenter is equidistant from the sides of the triangle
