To determine

To find:

The distance from the circumcenter to each verttex of an equilateral triangle whose sides have the lenth 10.

Explanation

Formula used:

Distance of circumcenter of the equilateral triangle:

R=s3

Where s is the length of the sides of the triangle.

Given:

The distance from the circumcenter to each verttex of an equilateral triangle whose sides have the lenth 10

Calculation:

Consider the measures of length of a equilateral triangle 10.

From the equilateral triangle, s=10.

Substituting s=10 above formula,

R=103werationlazingthedenominator,R=
