1. Jason wants to build a home on some property he just purchased. His property just happens to be shaped like an obtuse triangle. Would the circumcenter be a good location for his home? Why or why not
these questions are never good, its really up to jason to pick whatever spot he wants to right :)
if an angle is greater then 90; it tends to bring the circumcenter outside of the boundaries ...
or am i confusing terms again .....
No, you're right. The circumcenter is the center of the circle that circumscribes the triangle. In an obtuse triangle it is outside (on the hypotenuse side) of the triangle. That would be a bad choice of location for the house since Jason probably doesn't own that land.
Meant to say "long side"
Stupid brain...serving up the wrong word
what should i put as the answer?
this is the part where you think for your self :)
does a house ouside of your property seem like a good idea?
amistre, can you check out a problem for me and tell me if i'm missing something?
