In order that a triangle be strong it is necessary to inscribe supports at the three weak points.
A circular support is the most complete, and the only way in which the three smaller triangles remain ‘equal’ in size.

As the circle distorts so do the equality of the triangles lessen. Pressure applied at the weak point will distort the circle and cause stress.
