to find circumcentre

Asked by meghapte | 17th Jan, 2010, 03:30: PM

Expert Answer:

the circumcenter of a triangle is the point of intersection of the perpendicular bisectors of its sides.

 each point on a perpendicular bisector is equidistant from  the end points of the line segment.

so if we call the points as A,B,C respectively and P(X,Y) as  the circumcenter,

 then,

 use

PA=PB=PC

So using this , get the equations using distance formula and get the answer.
