### Geometry

Question | Answer |
---|---|

A segment that connects the midpoint of two sides of the triangle | Midsegment of a Triangle |

A segment, ray, line or plane that is perpendicular to a segment at its midpoint | Perpendicular Bisector |

The same distance from one figure as from another figure | Equidistant |

Three or more lines, rays, or segments that intersect at the same point | Concurrent |

The point of intersection of concurrent lines, rays, or segments | Point of Concurrency |

The point of concurrency of the three perpendicular bisectors of the triangle | Circumcenter |

The point of concurrency of the three angle bisectors of the triangle | Incenter |

A segment from one vertex of the triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side | Median of a Triangle |

The point of concurrency of the three medians of the triangle | Centroid |

The perpendicular segment from one vertex of the triangle to the opposite sides or to the line that contains the opposite sides | Altitude of a Triangle |

The point at which the lines containing the three altitudes of the triangle intersect | Orthocenter |

A proof in which you prove that a statement is true by first assuming it is false. If this assumption leads to an impossibility, then you have proved the original statement is true | Indirect Proof |
