Can I get some help please.

If I have a triangle with three sides of 72 or a perimeter of 216 I believe the area is 2701.

Now if I draw a circle around the tips of the triangle, what is the diameter and circumference of the circle?

I also need the answer in that the circle is just outside the tips but not connected but as ABSOLUTELY AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE.

Is there a standard formula for this ? If so what is it?

Thanks for the help!
