    Re: Finding The Symmedian
    From: Gary LaPook

    I had written:

    "In my opinion, all three constructions are difficult and time consuming and do not provide a point with a greatly greater probability than the other methods of selecting a point to use for the fix, the centroid, the incenter and the steiner point. Of these methods it appears that the steiner point comes closest to approximating the symmedian point and is extremely easy to use. (And, of course, there is also the eyeball method."

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    I am attaching a photo of the same cocked hat with the steiner point identified by use of a template. You can see how close it comes to the symmedian point.
