Triangle ABC has circumcenter O. If AB = 10 and the area of OAB is 30, find the circumradius of triangle ABC.

Circumradius = 2*30/10 = 6.

We can let A  = (0,0)

And B  = (10, 0)

Since [ OAB ] = 30....then  we can let O be (5, 6)

 

The distance between  O  and any vertex  is   sqrt  (5^2 + 6^2)  =  sqrt (61)  =  circumradius

 

So C  must be   ( 5, 6 + sqrt (61) )
