Cleaver (geometry)
From Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge core
In geometry, a cleaver of a triangle is a line segment that bisects the perimeter of the triangle and has one endpoint at the midpoint of one of the three sides.
- Each cleaver is parallel to one of the angle bisectors of the triangle.^{[1]}
- The three cleavers concur at the center of the Spieker circle.
