To find:

Does a square have an incenter.

Definition:

Incenter of the triangle:

The three angle bisectors of a triangle are concurrent and always meet in the triangle interior. The incenter is the center of the incircle. The incenter is the one point in the triangle whose distances to the sides are equal.

Given:

Does a square have an incenter.

Clarification:

By the above definition,

The point of concurrence for the three angle bisectors of a triangle is known as incenter of the triangle.

And also in square, the angle bisectors are congruent. So the square has an incenter...
