**Reiny**, Wednesday, August 29, 2012 at 11:15pmI will describe the method for you, but you must do the work.

Label the points A, B, and C

The centre of the circle will lie on the intersection of the right bisectors of AB and AC

1. Find the midpoint of AB

2. find the slope of AB

3. The slope of the right-bisector will be the negative reciprocal of the slope of AB

e.g. slope AB = (20+40)/(-25 + 5) = 60/-20 = -3

so the slope of the right-bisector is 1/3

You now have the slope of that line and a point on it, (its midpoint)

Find the equation of the line

repeat the above steps to get the right-bisector of AC

solve the two equations, the solution would be the position of the tower.
