Help I need help to find the coordinates of the circumcenter of each triangle. Isosceles triangle CDE with vertices C(0, 6), D(0, –6), and E(12, 0)

  • Geometry -

    the circumcenter is the intersection of the perpendicular bisectors of the sides.

    The midpoint of CD = (0,0)
    The slope of CD is -12/0 is undefined, so CD is vertical
    The perpendicular bisector is horizontal.
    You want the line through (0,0) with slope 0 is the line y=0.

    The midpoint of DE = (6,-6)
    The slope of DE is 6/12 = 1/2
    You slope of the bisector is -2
    The line through (6,-6) with slope -2 is
    y+6 = -2(x-6), or y = -2x + 6

    the two bisectors intersect at (0,3), which is the circumcenter.

    as usual, check my math.
