Circumcircle and Circumcenter

Click the check boxes and move the vertices of the triangle to explore. What do you observe?

This is a Java Applet created using GeoGebra from www.geogebra.org - it looks like you don't have Java installed, please go to www.java.com
In any triangle, a circle called circumcircle maybe drawn that passes through its vertices. The center of the circumcircle is called the circumcenter. The perpendicular bisector of the three sides of any triangle passes through its circumcenter.
