Let A = (1,2,1)B = (-2,2,-1)C = (1,1,0)
if we find length AB = \sqrt13
length BC = \sqrt11
length AC = \sqrt2
thus we see that
AB2 = BC2 + AC2
thus ABC is a right angled triangle with hypotenuse AB.
In a right angled triangle circumcentre will be at the middle point of hypotenuse
thus in this question circumcentre  = mid point of AB
circumcentre = [(1–2)/2 ,(2+2)/2 , (1–1)/2 ]
 = ( –1/2 , 2 , 0 )
hence proved
