Question

# If the orthocentre and centroid of a triangle are $$(-3,5,1)$$ and $$(3,3,-1)$$ respectively, then its circumcentre is

A
(6,2,1)
B
(1,2,0)
C
(6,2,2)
D
(6,2,2)

Solution

## The correct option is C $$(6,2,-2)$$given $$centroid(G)=(3,3,-1)$$$$orthocenter(H)=(-3,5,1)$$let $$dircumcenter(S)=(x,y,z)$$we know that G divides H,S in the ratio $$m:n=2:1$$therefore $$(3,3,-1)=((\dfrac{mx2+nx}{m+n}),(\dfrac{my2+ny1}{m+n}),(\dfrac{mz2+nz1}{m+n}))$$$$(3,3,-1)=((\dfrac{2x-3}{3}),(\dfrac{2y+5}{3}),(\dfrac{2z+1}{3}))$$$$(x,y,z)=(6,2,-2)$$Mathematics
