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

OpenStudy (amistre64):

these questions are never good, its really up to jason to pick whatever spot he wants to right :)

OpenStudy (amistre64):

if an angle is greater then 90; it tends to bring the circumcenter outside of the boundaries ...

OpenStudy (amistre64):

or am i confusing terms again .....

OpenStudy (anonymous):

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.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Sorry...strike hypotenuse...

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Meant to say "long side"

OpenStudy (amistre64):

OpenStudy (amistre64):
