AE is an interior bisector of angle A

ReplyDeleteBE/EC = AB/AC

CD is an interior bisector of angle C

AD/DB = AC/BC

AE is an exterior bisector of angle B

FA/FC = AB/BC

therefore

BD/DA * AF/FC * CE/EB = BC/AC * AB/BC * AC/BC = 1

therefore

D, E, F are collinear points

Magdy Essafty

- P is on AC such that BP bisects <B.

ReplyDelete- It is known that P is the harmonic conjugate of F w/r AC.

In conclusion, F-E-D must be colinear.
