3. bloodrain

i think its a circumcenter of triangle thingy right?

4. bloodrain

5. bookworm00981

its somewhere on the right side slightly below the halfway mark

6. bloodrain

i know so i have to find the center of the triangle

7. bloodrain

Wait, so can I answer "they have to meet each other in the circumcenter of the triangle" and thats it?

8. bookworm00981

how come you have to find the circumcenter of a triangle when the image shows a rectangle?

9. bloodrain

10. bookworm00981

23. JakeV8

Just be clear that the "triangle" is the triangle that connects the gates, not some version of the corners of the park

24. AriPotta

yea, say that you connect the gates with straight lines, creating a triangle. or whatever
