A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Where is the orthocenter on an obtuse triangle?

An orthocenter on an obtuse triangle actually lies outside of the triangle. In an acute triangle, the orthocenter lies within the triangle.


What type of triangle has its orthocenter outside of the triangle?

The orthocenter of a triangle is found at the intersection of the three altitudes of the triangle. Obtuse triangles contain altitudes which are found outside of the triangle, meaning their orthocenter must be outside of the triangle as well.


Where can the orthocenter be found in relation to the triangle?

inside-acute,on the triangle-right,outside-obtuse


How do you find orthocenter?

You find the orthocenter by constructing the altitudes from the vertices in a triangle. If the triangle is obtuse, the orthocenter will fall outside the triangle. If the triangle is acute, the orthocenter will fall on the inside of the triangle. If the triangle is a right triangle, the orthocenter will lie on a vertix.


What is an orthocentre and where it is located for an obtuse right and a right angled triangles?

On an obtuse triangle the orthocenter is located on the outside of the triangle and the orthocenter of the right triangle is located at the vertex of the triangle ...


The orthocenter of a triangle may lie outside the triangle since?

The orthocenter is the point where the altitudes of a triangle intersect. An orthocenter lies outside of a triangle only when the triangle is obtuse. If a triangle is acute, the orthocenter lies inside of the triangle.


Where is the orthocenter in an obtuse triangle?

Hi,The orthocenter in an obtuse triangle is outside. To make this happen the altitude lines have to be extended so they cross.Hope this answers your question!


In which type of triangle does the orthocenter of the triangle fall outside the triangle?

An obtuse angled triangle.


When is the point of concurrency outside a triangle?

When you have and obtuse triangle and you are trying to find the Orthocenter


The orthocenter of a triangle may lie outside the triangle since the may not intersect any side of the triangle?

True for an obtuse triangle!


Do the altidudes of a triangle always meet in the interior of the triangle?

In a obtuse triangle, the point of concurrency, where multiple lines meet, of the altitudes, called the orthocenter, is outside the triangle. In a right angle, the orthocenter lies on the vertex (corner) of the right angle. In an acute angle, the orthocenter lies inside the triangle.


When is the orthocenter inside on or outside of the triangle?

Inside: acute angled triangleOn: right angled triangle Outside: obtuse angled triangle.
