## Flapdragon 4 years ago Could someone help explain to me how to do this problem?

1. Flapdragon

2. LagrangeSon678

nyan cat cant solve math problems

3. hoblos

here u must find the center of the circumscribed circle of the triangle(g1g2g3) here the triangle seems to be right so it is the midpoint of the hypotenuses

4. arjuna

no guaranterr that all 3 would fall on same circle so prob has n solution

5. hoblos

arjuna each triangle has a circumscribed circle

6. sarah17

use the orthocenter

7. sarah17

interesting way to disguise math in a question ;)

8. sarah17

i mean, this is an interesting application of geometry

9. hoblos

sorry sarah but the orthocenter is useless here

10. sarah17

its a seriously good question, some real world problems are hokey, this one is god

11. sarah17

hoblos, ok what does the orthocenter tell you ?

12. sarah17

ok that makes sense, the circumcenter is the same distance to each of the three vertices, since they are radii

13. hoblos

the intersection of the altitudes of the triangle

14. hoblos

yup thats it

15. hoblos

btw where are you from sarah? if you dont mind

16. sarah17

the orthocenter is the intersection of the perpindicular bisectors

17. sarah17

i am from maryland

18. hoblos

19. hoblos

btw it is not intersection of the perpindicular bisectors it is intersection of the altitudes or heights

20. arjuna

centroid?

21. hoblos

22. arjuna

dropping altitudes and calculating intersection

23. hoblos

no centroid is dropping the medians and calculating intersection

Thank you, everyone! c:
