In a huge park, people are concentrated at three points (see Fig. 7.52):
A: where there are different slides and swings for children,
B: near which a man-made lake is situated,
$ C $ : which is near to a large parking and exit.
Where should an icecream parlour be set up so that maximum number of persons can approach it?
(Himt : The parlour should be equidistant from $ \mathrm{A}, \mathrm{B} $ and $ \mathrm{C} $ )

Given:

In a huge park, people are concentrated at three points.

To do:
We have to find where to set up an icecream parlour so that maximum number of persons can approach.

Solution:


Let us consider $ABC$ as a triangle.

Such that the three points in a triangle will be equidistant at circumcentre from the points $ABC$.

Therefore, let us join points $ABC$

Let us draw perpendicular bisectors to $AB$, $BC$ and $CA$

Now let mark the point of intersection as point $O$ this will be the circumcentre

Therefore, An ice cream parlour can be set up at $O$.
