### What is Meant by Orthocenter?

In mathematics, the orthocenter of a triangle is considered as an intersection point where all the three altitudes of a triangle meet at a common point. We know that there are different types of triangles, such as the scalene triangle, isosceles triangle, equilateral triangle. The orthocentre will vary for the different types. For an acute triangle, the orthocenter lies inside the triangle, for an obtuse triangle, it lies outside of the triangle, and for the right triangle, it lies on the triangle.
