Problem 1335

ReplyDelete4 .Suppose that HF intersects the circle (K,KA ) at the points P and Q (P is left of Q), OK is perpendicular to AB (K on AB) , KT perpendicular to OA (T on OA ) , KN perpendicular to PQ (N on PQ ) and KL perpendicular to OF (L on OF). Let HG intersect EF in M then

EM=MF=x and OA=R , KE=KO=KB=KA=R√(2 )/2. Is KT=KN=R/2, LF=LO=OF/2=(R/2)+x=

LM+x or LM=KN=R/2=KT. So PQ=AO=R.Therefore the point K is incenter of triangle OHG.

So HN=HT or HA=HP=a, similar GQ=GB=b. Now I apply the Pythagorean theory to a triangle HOG then OH^2+OG^2=HG^2 or (R+a)^2+(R+b)^2=(R+a+b) or R^2=2ab or

AB^2=4HA.GB .

3.〖 S〗_1=π.(AK)^2/2+(AOB)-π.(ΑΟ)^2/4=π.R^2/4 +(AOB)-π.R^2/4=(AOB)=S.
