**Aim: How do you construct the 9-point circle?**• Do now: What is the orthocenter? The orthocenter of a triangle is the point where the three altitudes meet. • What is the circumcenter? The circumcenter is the center of the circle such that the radi touch the midpoints of the three sides. • What is the centroid? The centroid of a triangle is constructed by taking any given triangle and connecting the midpoints of each leg of the triangle to the opposite vertex.**Sketch the orthocenter of triangle ABC**Label the points of intersection as H Orthocenter = altitudes**Construct the midpoints of the segments :**AH BH CH And label them as X, Y, Z
