A reta BD intercepta a circunferência menor no ponto F e BC intercepta no ponto G. Ligando EF e EG, teremos que o angulo FED = (1/2)(arcEF) = angulo DBE. Angulo EGC = (1/2)(arcEG)= angulo CBE. Traçando a reta (r) tangente em B temos que ang(FBr)=(1/2).(arcFB) = angBGF e ang(DBr) = (1/2).(arcBD) = ang(BCD). Então GF é paralelo a CD o que se conclui que o arco(EG) = arco(EF) então angulo FED = angulo(GEC). Assim, BE é bissetriz do ângulo B.

ReplyDeleteDraw OM perpendicular to chord CD . M is on circle O and M is midpoint of arc CD.

We will prove that M, E, B are collinear.

1. Tri. AEB and MOB are isosceles with common angle OEB

OM // AE and m(MOB)=m(EAB) ( corresponding angles)

2. m(OMB)=90- ½ m(MOB)

m(AEB)=90- ½ m(EAB)

so m(OMB)=m(AEB)

3. M,E,B are collinear and BE is the angle bisector of angle CBD
