Four Circles Theorem with Dynamic Geometry: TracenPoche Software. Concyclic Points,
Cyclic Quadrilateral, Intersection Points, Common Chord. Level: High School, SAT Prep, College.
Geometry Problem 756.
Proposition: Given four concyclic points (lie on
the same circumference) A,B,C,D, if four circles through AB,
BC, CD, and AD are drawn, prove that the remaining four intersections points
A', B', C', and D' of successive circles are concyclic.
