Geometry Problem 1140: Triangle, Circumcircle, Circle, Center, Collinear Points. Level: High School, SAT Prep, Honors Geometry, College, Math Education


In a triangle ABC of circumcircle O, a circle of center B cuts the circle O and AC at C1, B1, B2, and A1, respectively, (see figure below). The circumcircle of triangle AB1C1 cuts AB at C2. The circumcircle of triangle A2B2C cuts BC at A2. C1C2 and A1A2 meet at D. C1B1 and A1B2 meet at E. C2B1 and A2B2 meet at F. Prove that (1) Points B, D, and O are collinear; (2) Points B, E, and F are collinear.
