< PREVIOUS PROBLEM  |  NEXT PROBLEM >

The infographic below shows a triangle ABC with a line L tangent to the circumcircle O at T. L intersects CB, AC, and AB (extended if necessary) at A1, B1, and C1, respectively. A2, B2, and C2, are the reflections of T over CB, AC, and AB, respectively. Lines A1A2, B1B2, and C1C2 determine the triangle A3B3C3. Prove that (1) Points A2, B2, and C2 are collinear; (2) Circle O and the circumcircle of triangle A3B3C3 are tangent at D.
