The circumradius of a regular polygon or triangle is the radius of the circumcircle, which is the circle that passes through all the vertices.

For any right-angled triangle, the circumradius is half of its hypotenuse.

Sounds like a fancy term for "perimeter"
If the GMAT were to ask for the circumradius, I'm certain there would be some text that defines this term.
