The circumcircle of a triangle is the unique circle that passes through all three of its vertices.
Observe that each edge-crossing produced by moving the interior points from the incircle to the circumcircle involves an edge connecting an interior point to its nearest vertex of the h-gon or involves an edge of the h-gon (the solid edges in Figure 6).
The upper bound is clear because pqr is enclosed by the circumcircle with radius X.
Definition 9 We define the circumcircle sphere as the sphere having the circumcircle of the base triangle as diametral circle.
in an acute triangle ABC, where a,b,c are the lenghts of sides BC, CA, AB; A,B,C are the measures of the angles [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] calculated in radians, r is the radius of incircle; s is the semi-perimeter; R is the radius of circumcircle and [DELTA] is the area.
Geometry elements: point, glider, intersection, line, segment, parallel, perpendicular, axis, tangent, normal, vector, circle, circumcircle, ellipse, hyperbola, parabola, conic defined by five points, polygon, regular polygon, midpoint, mirror point, reflection point, semicircle, circumcircle arc, circumcircle sector, angle, bisector, bisector lines, exact loci computation, homogeneous and affine coordinates
4 Some dynamic geometry software packages have the "custom tools" feature that allows users to construct their own tools such as the Circumcircle of a Triangle, but general users have difficulties in constructing such "custom tools" themselves.

However, a geometric approach to the problem can be taken by observing that all the points D such that ADC = ABC lie on the circumcircle of ABC.
n] tends to be an equilateral triangle with the same circumcircle as the Napoleon's Triangle of the original triangle.
n] represent the radius of the circumcircles of the test triangle and the source triangle, respectively.
