What is the difference between centre and center? Is it just english v's america?

Yeah/Yup --Henrygb 11:04, 15 October 2006 (UTC)
Yes. Also meter/metre, theater/theatre etc. The -er ending seeming right until you start thinking about the adjectival forms, eg central, not centeral! Darmot and gilad (talk) 09:10, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Centre of equilateral triangle[edit]

For us simpletons it would be nice to know where the centre is for an equilateral triangle (I think that is a reasonably FAQ, at least compared to some of the stuff writen on triangle centres). Here it is stated that it is the same point independent of center definition, but it doesn't say where, nor does it on the equilateral triangle page. I remember from school days that it is something like height/3, but I am far from certain enough to put it in and after reading triangle centre a bit to confused to dare to do a web-search. Hope someone else can shed some light.
