assuming this is a regular pentagon (all five sides are equal length) the center is the intersection of the intersection of perpendicular bisectors of each side and should also be the center of the circle in which it is inscribed

If the pentagon is a REGULAR pentagon. (All the sides are of equal length), Then the centres are co-centred. ( the same point).

However,

if the pentagon is irregular then the circle centre and the pentagonal centre are not the same.

### How many different inscribed circles can be inscribed in a given triangle?

There is only one possible circle that can be inscribed in any triangle because all of the sides of the triangle must touch the circle at some point. Also, there is only one &quot;incenter&quot; of each circle. The incenter is the center of an inscribed circle.

### Which lines do you draw to find the center of a circle inscribed in a triangle?

In geometry, the incircle or inscribed circle of a triangle is the largest circle contained in the triangle; it touches (is tangent to) the three sides.The center of the incircle is called the triangle's incenter.The center of the incircle can be found as the intersection of the three internal angle bisectors.You draw three lines. Each line from one triangle head point to the opposite triangle side and bisecting the angle. These three lines will intersect in one point which is the circle center.

### What is the difference between inscribed and circumscribed?

== == Inscribed is a polygon inside a circle with all points on a given point in the circle. Circumscribed is a circle inside a polygon with any given point touching just one point on the polygon. Hope this helped.

### What shows an equilateral triangle inscribed in a circle?

An equilateral triangle inscribed in a circle has three sides that are equal in length and three angles that are each 60 degrees. The center of the circle is also the intersection point of the triangle's perpendicular bisectors.
