What is the radius of the circle inscribed in triangle ABC if AB = 10, AC = 17, BC = 21? Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest tenth.

 

Thanks in advance!

Here's a pic, ACG :

 

The perpendicular bisectors meet at  (7, 3.5)......this is the circle's center

 

The equation of the circle  is

(x - 3.5)^2 + ( y - 7)^2  =  3.5^2

 

So.....the radius is 3.5

 

 

cool cool cool
