The Euler Line and the Nine Point Circle
- Julie Buasen
- Centroid or Barycenter, Circle, Orthocenter
The orthocenter,the centroid and the circumcenter of a non-equilateral triangle are aligned; that is to say, they belong to the same straight line, called line of Euler. In any triangle, the mid-points of its sides, the feet of its altitudes, and the mid
1. A triangle has how many, nine-point circles? Euler lines? 2. In general, a triangle and its nine-point circle have how many points in common? 3. Give the maximum and minimum number of points a triangle and its nine-point circle might have in common?
