Textbook Problem

For a given triangle (such as △ A B C ), what word describes the point of concurrency fora) the three perpendicular bisectors of sides?b) the three altitudes? To determine

(a)

To describe:

The point of concurrency for the three perpendicular bisectors of sides for a given triangle (such as ABC).

Explanation

Construct three perpendicular bisectors and they will cross each other at the point of concurrency called the circumcenter. A point where three or more lines intersect is called a point of concurrency. So, the circumcenter is the point of concurrency of perpendicular bisectors of a triangle. The point of concurrency is not necessarily inside the triangle. It may actually be in the triangle, on the triangle or outside of the triangle.

Calculation:

One of several centers the triangle can have, the circumcenter is the point where the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle intersect...

To determine

(b)

To describe:

The point of concurrency for the three altitudes for a given triangle (such as ABC).
