Do the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle always sometimes or never intersect on the triangle?

The perpendicular bisectors only intersect on the triangle when it is an isosceles right triangle.

What kind of triangle do the perpendicular bisectors intersect in a point outside the triangle?

a right triange

Will the perpendicular bisectors of a right triangle always intersect?

yes, because perpendicular lines always intersect. all lines intersect unless they are parallel or on separate planes (skew)

Can an angle bisector of a triangle always intersect inside the triangle?

The angle bisectors always intersect inside the triangle. (This is not true for altitudes and right bisectors.)

The perpendicular bisectors of a triangle are lines or segments that intersect the sides at right angles and divide each of them into two parts of length?

What is the name of the point at which all of the triangle's perpendicular bisectors intersect?

Circumcenter, this is the center-point of a circle circumscribed around the triangle. If the triangle is obtuse, then this point is outside the triangle and if the triangle is a right triangle, then the point is the midpoint of the hypotenuse.

What are perpendicular bisectors of a triangle?

It is only applicable to a right angle triangle where the perpendicular lines meet at 90 degrees

What are lines that intersect to form a right triangle?

What is the term for the point where the perpendicular bisectors in a triangle meet?

They meet at right angles

Are the diagonals of a square perpendicular bisectors?

The diagonals of a square are perpendicular (they intersect and form right angles). But they are angles bisectors since they bisect each pair of opposite angles. A perpendicular bisector actually bisects a side of a figure.

Where do Perpendicular bisectors intersect?

At a perfect right angle adjacent to the line and exactly half way along the line.
