Enclose 5 points with a circle

I'm trying to work out the algorithm to find the centroid and radius to allow me to draw the smallest circle that encloses all points (p[])

I've got an approx algorithm using the centroid and the radius equation but it's not quite accurate enough.

Is anyone aware of a better algorithm?
