waheguru 2 years ago Can someone explain how to find the answer to this question?

1. waheguru

2. amistre64

the point lie on a circle, is a trivial matter

3. amistre64

3 points that lie on a circle is a trivial matter that is

4. waheguru

Shouldn't we find the centroid

5. modphysnoob

of what radius is the question

6. amistre64

|dw:1364143025104:dw| a radius of a cirle is perp tp a chord and cuts it in half

7. waheguru

So would the circumcenter would be equiddistant from each point?

if you must use a third chord, it trivial, but sure :)

11. waheguru

The Intersection of the Right Bisectors or the Circumcener is equidistant from all three points right?

12. amistre64

your speaking greek to me, but yes

13. waheguru

But I thought it was he centroid because its the center of gravity

14. amistre64

they are not asking about a center of mass, but a point that is equidistant those need not be the same
