The lines that intersect to Form A right triangle are called Perpendicular Lines; the resulting meeting point of these two lines is called the vertex of the angle.

When the triangle is right, the orthocenter is the polygon vertex of the right angle. Intuitively this makes sense because the orthocenter is where the altitudes intersect. Hence, in a right triangle, the vertex of the right angle is where you would expect the altitudes to meet, at 90 degrees, where the legs of the right triangle are perpendicular.

When two lines intersect to form a right angle they are called perpendicular.

There can be only one pair of perpendicular lines in an isosceles triangle when it is a right angled isosceles triangle. A non right angled isosceles triangle has no pairs of perpendicular lines.

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

a right triange

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

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

Congruent (APEX) :P

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.

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

Perpendicular lines intersect at right angles.

They meet at right angles

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.

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