**2.1. Explain the existence of the circumcenter O, the incenter I, and the excenters IA , IB , and IC of
**

triangle ABC.

2.2. Explain the existence of the orthocenter H of triangle ABC.

2.3. Let AB be a segment. Points X and Y do not lie on line AB. Point Z lies on line AB. Then

X, Y, Z are collinear (that is, they lie on a line) if and only if [AXY ]/[BXY ] = AZ/BZ.

**2.4. Explain the existence of the centroid G of triangle ABC by establishing the fact that triangles
**

ABG, BCG, and CAG have the same area.

2.5. The three medians cut the triangle into 6 smaller triangles with equal area. The centroid of the

triangle lies 2/3 along way (from the vertex to the opposite midpoint) on each median.

2.6. [Euler] Prove that the orthocenter, circumcenter, and centroid of a triangle lie on a line. This line

is called the Euler line of the triangle.

2.7. Let ABC be a triangle with circumcircle ω. Let O, G, H, I, IA denote its circumcenter, centroid,

d (not including

orthocenter, incenter, excenter opposite A, respectively. Points M and HA lie on BC

A) such that BMd =M d C and AHA ⊥ BC. Let A1 be the midpoint of side BC. The following are

true.

**(a) points O, A1 , M are collinear;
**

(b) H and HA are symmetric across the line BC;

(c) G lies on segment OH with OG with 2OG = GH, and G is the intersection of segments AA1

and OH;

(d) points A, I, M, IA are collinear;

(e) points B, C, I, IA lie on a circle centered at M .

**2.8. Triangle ABC is inscribed in circle ω. Let A1 be the midpoint of arc BC d (not containing A).
**

Define points B1 and C1 analogously. Show that the incenter of triangle ABC is the orthocenter

of triangle A1 B1 C1 .

2.9. The incircles of triangle ABC is tangent to sides BC, CA, AB at D, E, F , respectively. Let IA , IB ,

IC be the incenters of triangles AEF, BDF, CDE, respectively. Prove that lines IA D, IB E, IC F

are concurrent.

2.10. Let ABC be a triangle with excenters IA , IB , and IC .

**(a) Prove that the incenter of triangle ABC is the orthocenter of triangle IA IB IC .
**

(b) Prove that triangle IA IB IC is acute.

(c) Prove that there is a point O such that IA O ⊥ BC, IB O ⊥ CA, IC O ⊥ AB.

**2.11. Let ABC be an acute-angled scalene triangle, and let H, I, and O be its orthocenter, incenter, and
**

circumcenter, respectively. Circle ω passes through points H, I, and O. Prove that if one of the

vertices of triangle ABC lies on circle ω, then there is one more vertex lies on ω.

2.12. In triangle ABC, ∠BAC = 120◦ . The angles bisectors of angles A, B, and C meet the opposite

sides at D, E, and F , respectively. Compute ∠EDF .

2.13. In triangle ABC, AB = 14, BC = 16, and CA = 26. Let M be the midpoint of side BC, and let

D be a point on segment BC such that AD bisects ∠BAC. Compute P M , where P is the foot of

perpendicular from B to line AD.

2.14. Given a circle ω and two fixed points A and B on the circle. Assume that there is a point C on ω

such that AC + BC = 2AB.

(a) Show that the line passing through the incenter and the centroid of the triangle is parallel to

one the side of the triangle.

(b) How to construct point C with a compass and a straightedge.
