The three main points form a triangle ABC. Now we have to find a point which is equidistant from all the three points.

Thus we need to find the circumcenter of the \Delta ABC

We know that circumcenter is defined as the point as the intersection point of the perpendicular bisectors of the sides of the triangle.

Hence the required point can be found out by drawing perpendicular bisectors of \Delta ABC.
