    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

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

    arjuna each triangle has a circumscribed circle

    use the orthocenter

    interesting way to disguise math in a question ;)

    i mean, this is an interesting application of geometry

    sorry sarah but the orthocenter is useless here

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

    hoblos, ok what does the orthocenter tell you ?

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

    the orthocenter is the intersection of the perpindicular bisectors

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

    dropping altitudes and calculating intersection

    no centroid is dropping the medians and calculating intersection
