**Christiaan**, Monday, February 25, 2008 at 9:54pmThe easiest way to do this is find 2 of the 3 altitudes of the triangle and look where they intersect. This point is the orthocenter.

**Lauren**, Monday, February 25, 2008 at 9:58pmbut don't the altitudes have to be perpindicular to the triangle lines?
