Given a triangle , let be the circumcenter and be the Nagel point. (See the MathWorld related link for the definition of the Nagel point.)


For a point , the vertices of the pedal triangle of with respect to are the feet of the perpendiculars from to the sides of .

Let , , be the exact trilinear coordinates of with respect to the sides , , and let .

Let , be the circumradius and inradius of and let .



You can drag the points , , and .
