Let BI extended meet AC at D and circle O at E

ReplyDelete< EAI = EIA = (A+B)/2 so AE = EI = IB since OI is perpendicular to BE

Further, since < EAD = < ABE = B/2, Tr.s ADE & ABE are similar and so

AD/c = AE/BE = 1/2 so that AD = c/2

But AD = bc/(a+c), hence c/2 = bc/(a+c) from which, a+c= 2b

Now S1 = rb/2 = (S/s)*(b/2) = Sb/(a+b+c) = Sb/(3b) = S/3

ReplyDeletelet BI meet AC at N and arc AC at D

Let CI meet arc AB at M

We have I is the midpoint of BD

and Triangle DIC is isoceles

Triangle DNC simillar to DCB ( case AA)

so DC^2=DN.DB=2DN.DI=2DN.DC

so DN/DC=DN/DI=1/2 => N is the midpoint of ID

and NI/NB=1/3

Area(AIC)/Area(ABC)= NI/NB= 1/3
