Let O and H be the circumcenter and orthocenter of triangle ABC, respectively. Let a, b, and c denote the side lengths, and let R denote the circumradius. Find OH^2 if R = 7 and a^2 + b^2 + c^2 = 29.

I tried to draw a diagram but it didn't work out too well. Could I have some hints plz? thanks

1. Euler's Theorem says that

OH^2 = R(R-2r) where r is the inradius

Hmmm. I'll have to think on how to figure r without knowing a,b,c...

ABC has vertices A(0, 6), B(4, 6), and C(1, 3). Sketch a graph of ABC and use it to find the orthocenter of ABC. Then list the steps you took to find the orthocenter, including any necessary points or slopes you had to derive.
