# Show that the origin is the circum–center of the triangle formed by the vertices (1, 0), (0, −1) and .

Formula used: Let the points be A (1, 0), B (0, –1), C and S (0, 0)

Distance of SA

SA = √ ((1 – 0)2 + (0 – 0)2)

SA = √ ((1)2 + (0)2

SA = √ (1 + 0)

SA = √ 1 = 1

Distance of SB

SB = √ ((0 – 0)2 + (–1 – 0)2)

SB = √ ((0)2 + (–1)2

SB = √ (0 + 1)

SB = √ 1 = 1

Distance of SC

SC SC SC SC SC =√ 1 = 1

It is known that the circum–centre is equidistant from all the vertices of a triangle.

Since S is equidistant from all the three vertices, it is the circum–centre of the triangle ABC.
