Vertex  I think it is the top pointy part of the triangle. A triangle has three "vertices." It's the place where any two sides of a triangle meet.
Hypotenuse: in a right triangle, the hypotenuse is the side opposite the right angle.
Perpendicular: two lines that meet at right angles (90 degrees) in a plane are said to be "perpendicular" to each other.
Hope that helps, Adam.
