Homework Help: geometry

Posted by susan on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 12:57pm.

I asked my teacher for a hint and he said that the pitcher's mound is not the radius. Am I supposed to assume that a side of a baseball diamond is 90? But that information wasn't given.....
Still confused.

If home plate is 60.5 feet from the pitcher's mound, find the distance from the pitcher's mound of a major league baseball field to the center of a circumscribed circle that touches home plate, 1st base and second base. Find the exact, simplified length of the radius of that circumscribed circle.

I am confused about exactly what this question is asking. Can you head me in the right direction?
