Internal Common Tangent

From Gogeometry Using : Isometric transformation Additional points Pythagoras Similar triangles Tangents to a circle Define O middle of AB, r=ED AD^2+AO^2=DO^2 a^2+(a/2)^2=(a/2+r)^2 a^2+a^2/4=a^2/4+r^2+ar r^2+ar-a^2=0 ∆=a^2+4a^2=5a^2 r>0 => r=(a.sqr(5)-a )/2 Draw a square symetryc of ABCD by O =>D becomes D’, C becomes C’, E becomes E’ => C’D’BA is […]
