Constructions

Construct a Circumcircle (circumcenter.....perpendicular bisectors
Why do they only do two?? The definition/theorem says intersection of 3????

Construct an Incircle (incenter....angle bisectors)
That last step is to help draw the circle.
It touches at a location perpendicular from the point to the side.


BTW
Median (needs midpoint)

Altitude (needs a perpendicular)  think of that top point as a vertex
(onlinemathlearning video.... another video   )
3 altitudes intersect (concurrency) and make an orthocenter (& therefor orthocircle)

Midsegment (needs 2 midpointx)


Do you know the definitions of these?
