Re: The eyeball game

Keep in mind that, if your display isn't quite proportional, the angles will look off.

Re: The eyeball game

Yeah, accidentally tabbing out and getting a 58.1 on a triangle center kinda skewed this for me.

A lot better than I thought I would be able to do. I got bored after the first round though, didn't know there would be more than that.

Re: The eyeball game

4.33 has been my best so far. Really good at bisecting angles and right angles, but not so great at circle and triangle center.

Re: The eyeball game

I have no idea what convergence is and I have already been told once.

If you extended all three lines, the point where they would meet.

They will meet no matter where I extend them to. There must be more than that.
