    Hello, booper563!

    Explain, in words, how two non-parallel chords of a circle
    can be used to locate the centre of the circle.
    Then show your explanation with a diagram.

    Construct the perpendicular bisectors of the two chords.
    They will intersect at the center.
    Code:
                  * * *
              *           *
            *---------------*
           *        *        *
                    *       
          *         *         *
          *         o       / *
          *           *    /  *
                        * /
           *             /   *
            *           /   *
              *        /  *
                  * * *
