Geometry Problem 1317:
Triangle, Excircle, Chord, Tangent, Midpoint, Arc, Sum of two Segments,
Congruence.

< PREVIOUS PROBLEM 
NEXT PROBLEM >

In the given figure, triangle ABC has an excircle O that corresponds
to side BC. The points where the excircle is tangent to the sides of the
triangle are labeled D, E, and F. Let M be the midpoint of the arc DE.
Chords BM and CM intersect the chord DE at points G and H, respectively.
You need to prove that the sum of lengths DG and HE is equal to the
length GH.
