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

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

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

what about the centroid arjuna??

no centroid is dropping the medians and calculating intersection
