That would depend in detail on what you know about it.

Draw a picture. Show the center, then draw a line to each vertex.

PS. Why does your message title begin with Re: ?? That implies that it
is a reply to some other posted message. If you typed the Re:, that is
not really a good idea. Some people will ignore your msg, thinking it
is part of a thread that they have not been paying attention to.
