Complex Numbers and Geometry (MAA Spectrum Series)

The aim of this publication is to illustrate that complicated numbers and geometry may be mixed jointly fantastically. This ends up in effortless proofs and common generalizations of many theorems in aircraft geometry, corresponding to the Napoleon theorem, the Ptolemy-Euler theorem, the Simson theorem, and the Morley theorem.

D Ex. 1. Show that if A, B, C, 63. be any four points in a plane, and if the six lines joining these points meet in the points E, F, G then the two ; POINTS CONJUGATE TO TWO POINT-PAIRS. 86 any one of these points are harmonically conjugate with EFG which meet in the same point This follows from § 60. lines which meet in the two sides of the triangle Ex. Deduce from 2. corresponding theorem when four straight § 62, the lines are given. Ex. two of the point of intersection of Ex. two straight lines be drawn intersecting and C, D respectively, show that the locus and DC is a straight line.

ABC) - (BCD) + (CDA) - (DAB) = Therefore (ii) AB, let AB cut D C and If the points CD is triangles (AHD) and (HCB). 0. on opposite sides of the the point H. in (ABCD) That lie line Then the expn clearly equal to the difference of the areas of the (ABCD) = (A HD) - (HCB) = (ABD) - (DCB) = (ABD) + (DBC). is Similarly we may show that (ABCD) = (ABC) + (CDA). Hence, as before, (ABC) + (CDA) = (ABD) + (DBC) that is, Ex. 34. 1. If a, b, c, d be any (abed) that Ex. ; (ABC) - (BCD) + (CDA) - (DAB) = 0.
