geometry[circumcircle] - find the circumcircle of a given triangle

Calling Sequence

circumcircle(cc, T, cn)

Parameters

cc

-

the name of the circumcircle

T

-

triangle

'centername' = cn

-

(optional) where cn is a name of the center of circumcircle

Description

• 

The circumcircle cc of a triangle T is a circle circumscribed about the triangle.

• 

If the optional argument is given and is of the form 'centername' = cn where cn is name, cn will be the name of the center of cc.

• 

For a detailed description of the circumcircle cc, use the routine detail (i.e., detail(cc);)

• 

Note that the routine only works if the vertices of the triangle are known.

• 

The command with(geometry,circumcircle) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
