To illustrate that perpendicular bisectors of the sides of a triangle concur at a point(called the circumcentre) and it falls inside for an acute-angled triangle, on the hypotenuse of right-angled triangle and outside for an obtuse-angled triangle.
Circumcentre of a triangle is the point of intersection of all the three perpendicular bisectors of the triangle. It is where the "perpendicular bisectors" (lines that are at right angles to the midpoint of each side) meet. The circumcentre of a triangle is equidistant from its vertices and the distance of the circumcentre from each of the three vertices are called circum-radius of the triangle.
