Ground Zero

Problem #113

Tags: mathematics geometry

Who solved this?

In the year of 2009 small company where I was working as a junior electronics developer was offered to produce a whimsical solution for military forces. One of the parts of the problem was about geometry.

Here is the "polygon" - the place where artillery men perform their training. Let it have square form of 10x10 kilometres.

Several seismic sensors are planted at the different points of this place. We know their coordinates exactly (they have built-in GPS).

With this sensors it is possible to register the timestamp of all shell explosions occuring at the polygon.

Since there is usually some distance between explosion point (let call it ground zero) and each of sensors, the timestamp registered by them is slighthly behind the time of the explosion itself. We assume that the "shake" of the ground travels (or propagates) with the constant (but unknown) speed through the soil.

For example if the seismic wave made by the shell occured at 12:00:00.000 time and the speed of propagation is 1000 m/s then the sensor at 2.5km distance will register it at 12:00:02.500.

My task was to determine the locations and times of explosions by the records from seismic sensors. Now it becomes your task, though in simplified form :)

Input data contain the number of test-cases in the first line.
Next lines will describe one test-case each.
Every test-case contains the number of sensors at first and then triplets of values X, Y, T for each of sensors. X and Y are coordinates of the sensor, they will be integers in range 0...10000, and T is the timestamp of the event as registered by this sensor (float value in seconds). Please, round coordinates to nearest integer and seconds to one digit after decimal point (also to nearest). Triplets in input are separated with semicolons.
Answer should contain a triplet of values - coordinates and the timestamp of the explosion itself - for each of test-cases (in form X Y T also). Use only spaces as separators here.

Note that the speed of propagation of the seismic wave is not necessarily the same for different test-cases.
