Constructing the Circumcenter
The point of concurrency of the three perpendicular bisectors of a triangle is the circumcenter. It is the center of the circlecircumscribed about the triangle, making the circumcenter equidistant from the three vertices of the triangle. The circumcenter is not always within the triangle. In a coordinate plane, to find the circumcenter we first find the equation of two perpendicular bisectors of the sides and solve the system of equations.
