This page shows how to find the center of a circle using any right-angled object. This method works as a result of using
Thales Theorem
in reverse. The diameter of a circle
subtends
a
right angle
to any point on the circle. By placing the 90° corner of an object on the circle, we can find a diameter. By finding two diameters we establish the center where they
intersect.

... I have a small favor to ask. Over the years we have used advertising to support the site so it can remain free for everyone.
However, advertising revenue is falling and I have always hated the ads. So, would you go to Patreon and become a patron of the site?
*When we reach the goal I will remove all advertising from the site.*

It only takes a minute and any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for considering it! * – John Page*
