    1. P(1,2), Q(25,2), R(10,20).

    X = (1+25+10) / 3 = 12.

    Y = (2+2+20) / 3 = 8.

    C(12,8). = Coordinates of Centroid.

    2. SIDE PQ:
    Xo = (1+25) / 2 = 13.

    Yo = (2+2) / 2 = 2.

    M(13,2).

    m = (2-2) / (25-1) = 0/24 = 0.

    m2 = -1/0 = Undefined = slope of perpendicular bisector(P.B.).


    Eq1: X = 13 = Eq of P.B. of PQ = a ver line.

    SIDE PR:

    Xo = (1+10) / 2 = 5.5.

    Yo = (2+20) / 2 = 11.

    M(5.5,11).

    m = (20-2) / (10-1) = 2.

    m2 = -1/2 = slope of P.B. of PR.

    Y = (-1/2)*5.5 + b = 11,
    -2.75 + b = 11,
    b = 11 + 2.75 = 13.75.

    Eq2: Y = -X/2 + 13.75 = P.B. OF PR.

    Substitute 13 for X:
    Y = -13/2 + 13.75 = 7.25.

    C(13,7.25).=Coordinates of circumcenter
