    POI of right bisectors of sides of triangle

    POI of right bisectors of sides of triangle.

    For example, if the coordinates are E(-3,5), F(0,-1), and G(6,5). How would I do this?

    I found the midpoints of all sides, and the reciprocal of the slopes of all sides, but I have no idea what to do with it.
