# The Property of the Angle Bisectors of a Triangle

• Incentre

## Notes

### The Property of the Angle Bisectors of a Triangle:

• Draw any ΔPQR.
• Use a compass to draw the bisectors of all three of its angles. (Extend the bisectors, if necessary, so that they intersect one another.)
• These three bisectors pass through the same point. That is, they are concurrent.
Name the point of concurrence ‘I’. Note that the point of concurrence of the angle bisectors of a triangle is in the interior of the triangle.
• Draw perpendiculars IA, IB, and IC respectively from I on to the sides of the triangle PQ, QR, and PR. Measure the lengths of these perpendiculars. Note that IA = IB = IC.

### Point to Remember:

The angle bisectors of a triangle are concurrent. Their point of concurrence is called the incentre, and is shown by the letter ‘I’.
