RadicalCenter - Maple Help

geometry

 find the radical center of three given circles

 Calling Sequence RadicalCenter(o, c1, c2, c3)

Parameters

 o - the name of the radical center c1, c2, c3 - three circles

Description

 • The point of concurrence of the radical axes of three circles with noncollinear centers, taken in pairs, is called the radical center of the three circles.
 • For a detailed description of the radical center o, use the routine detail (i.e., detail(o))
 • The command with(geometry,RadicalCenter) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
