Orthocenter Outside the Obtuse Triangle problems

Centroid Circumcenter Incenter Orthocenter properties example question

In the following video you will learn how to find the coordinates of the Orthocenter located outside the triangle in the standard xy-plane (also known as coordinate plane or Cartesian plane).
