The circumcenter is always on the midpoint of the hypotenuse when it is in a right triangle.

The midpoint of the hypotenuse equidistant from all the vertices

The midpoint of the hypotenuse equidistant from all the vertices

The midpoint of the hypotenuse equidistant from all the vertices

Simply by measuring it. Or by drawing a circle with a radius of half the hypotenuse and having the vertex of the right angle as its centre and if the midpoint of the hypotenuse just touches the circle then this proves it.

Only at the midpoint of the hypotenuse.

a^2 + b^2 = c^2 a and b are the distances for the side of the triangle and c is the hypotenuse(long side)

All right triangles inscribed in a circle have their vertices on the circle and the hypotenuse as the circle's diameter. Thus the midpoint of the hypotenuse is the center of the circle nd all points on the circle are eqully as far from the center even so the vertex of the right angle.

If it is a 45-45-90 triangle, it will have symmetry from the 90 degree angle to the midpoint of the hypotenuse.

midpoint postulate

Half of the chord, the distance of the midpoint from the center, and a radius, form a right triangle, with the radius as its hypotenuse. (4.5)2 + (6)2 = (radius)2 (20.25) + (36) = 56.25 = R2 Radius = 7.5 inches

it gives you the midpoint of the line segment you use the formula for
