Locating the center of a circle that forms an arc 
20150423 

From Ken:
Find the Cartesian coordinates of the center of an arc with the given location of the beginning and end points and radius length. Not the midpoint of the circumference but the actual point that the arc
is drawn around.
I know their are two answers depending on the direction of the arc. Unless we assume that all arcs are drawn counter clock wise.
Thanks
