What is the easiest way to calculate a location that is equidistant from three locations? (In this case: Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit)

I tried several algebra formulas I found online and came up with Albany, NY, which obviously isn't correct. Clearly, my algebra is too hazy and my head is now swimming with terms like "centroid" and "circumcenter".
In case anyone wonders: this isn't for a class and I'm not trying to avoid doing the work myself, I'm just stuck.
