In a square ABCD, a circle with center O is inscribed, such that it touches sides AB, BC, CD, and AD at points E, F, G, and H, respectively. The line BD intersects the arc EF at point K. The lines AF and HK intersect at point M. Calculate the measure of angle AMK.

Geometric Symphony: The Tale of a Square, a Circle, and Angle AMK

Within a square, so perfect and true,

A circle's
grace, a geometric view,

With center O, it stands
inscribed,

Touches sides with poise, in points
described.

AB, BC, CD, AD, it meets with ease,

At E, F, G,
and H, with gentle tease,

A symphony of shapes, in
harmonious blend,

A dance of lines, that seem to
never end.

The line BD, a path it takes,

Intersects the arc
with calculated stakes,

At point K, where angles
meet,

A junction formed, so sweetly neat.

AF and HK, two lines in play,

They intersect, in a
wondrous way,

At point M, where paths converge,

A
meeting point, a geometrical urge.

Now, angle AMK, the final quest,

A measure sought,
a mathematical test,

With skill and wit, calculations
made,

Solving the puzzle, with math displayed.

So, in this tale of squares and circles told,

A
poetic ode to geometry bold,

With lines and points,
and angles to see,

A mathematical journey, a
captivating decree.
