P the point BF meet AE, join P to L, H, C, D

ReplyDeleteTr APB = tr PEF (ASA) => tr APL = tr PFH (SAS)

Draw PH, PH1 altitudes for PLH and tr PCD => H, P, H1 collinear

=> L, P, D collinear

ReplyDeleteDraw BF, CH , PA , PL and diameter BH and AG

Typical Arc(AB) = 360/12 =30 degrees

1. Triangle OFH is equilateral and triangle BHF is a 30-60-90 triangle

PFH is 45-45-90 triangle and PF=FH=OF=OA=AL

Quadrilateral AOFP is a rhombus ( OA=PF, OA//PF and OA= OF=PF)

So ∠ (PAG)= ∠ (PFO)= 30 degrees = ∠ (GAE) => A, P, E are collinear

2. Since A,P,E are collinear => ∠ (EAL)= 90 and ALP is a 45-45-90 triangle

And ∠ (ALP)=45 degrees= ∠ (ALD) => L,P, D are collinear

So BF,CH, AE and LD are concurrent at P

CH, DL, BH are angle bisectors of triangle BDH, while DL, CH, AE are altitudes of triangle ADH.
