  1. Problem 1301
    Let K medium the arc AB and L medium the arc BC, then K is medium M1O1 and L is medium M2O2.Draw IH perpendicular in AC ,
    intersecting the circle (Ι,ΙΤ) in P.So from problem 1298 is IP=PH.
    But IP/PH=M1K/KO1=M2L/LO2 =1 so the points M1,I and C are collinear and points A,I and M2 are collinear.

    1. To Apostolis

      Referring to last line of your solution " But IP/PH=M1K/KO1=M2L/LO2 =1 so the points M1,I and C are collinear and points A,I and M2 are collinear"
      In my opinion , we need to show that points C, P and K are collinear before conclude that M1, I and C are collinear.

    2. Yes to peter.
      The points C,P and T1 are collinear from problem 1300 , <BT1C+<AT1B+<KT2A=45+90+45=180
      so the points K,T1,P and C are collinear. Thenks

  2. A relation between radius r1, r2,rI is required to get the solution
    Can anybody give it?

  3. Relation between three inradius (for all three circles inscribed in arbelos)
    Ri=[R1R2(R1+R2)]/(R1²+R1R2+R2²)

  4. PN perpendicular to AC, P intersection CM1 and AM2, tr PNA ~ tr M2O2A
    and tr PNC ~ tr M1O1C + Theorem pythagore for tr O1IN and O2IN
    then just to prove PN = 2Ri
