Collinear Points 
20030113 

From Gary:
Which of the 4 points are collinear when you construct the following concurrent lines or rays of a triangle?  P(1), the point where the angle bisectors intersect.
 P(2), the point where the altitudes (or extensions) intersect (inside or outside of the triangle).
 P(3), the point where the medians intersect.
 P(4), the point where the perpendicular bisectors (or extensions) of the three sides of a triangle intersect.
This is for my 912 high school class in geometry. My name is Gary Thanks for your help. Gary
