Geometry Problem 1556: Right Triangle ABC and Inscribed Circle. The problem involves circle, chords, tangent, perpendicular lines, and congruence

In a right triangle ABC, with the right angle at B, we have an inscribed circle centered at O. This circle touches AB at E and crosses CE at D. Next, we draw lines OF and BG perpendicular to CE. With DE measuring 8 units and OF measuring 1 unit, our aim is to find the length of FG.

Diagram of right triangle ABC with inscribed circle O, touching AB at E, intersecting CE at D, and lines OF and BG perpendicular to CE. DE measures 8 units, and OF measures 1 unit.

Triangle's silent tale,
Inscribed circle's gentle grace,
E and D converge,
Through lines OF and BG, we chase,
FG's length, the hidden trace.
