Q:
# Which best explains why the orthocenter of an obtuse triangle is outside the triangle?All three of the altitudes lie entirely outside the triangle.Two of the altitudes lie entirely outside the triangle.All three of the medians lie entirely outside the triangle.Two of the medians lie entirely outside the triangle.

Accepted Solution

A:

the answer is A. all three of the latitudes lie entirely outside the triangle

its a because all the altitudes have to cross each other so when an obtuse angle is being measured the altitudes have to cross but the only way they can can cross is if they are outside of the angle to get the right mesaurement
