Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I tried doing a search for this one here, but I didn't seem to come up with much...

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Prove that the three altitudes of a triangle meet at one point.

2. Relevant equations

Well, I am not really sure, but I know that Ceva's theorem might help me prove this, but I want to prove it vectorally, so I don't know if it will be much help at all.

3. The attempt at a solution

My instructor gave a hint for this proof by saying, show each of the triangles cevians are perpandicular to its opposite side... I can see pictorally this is ok, but where to start...???

Thanks
