In the triangle , let the incircle have center and let its points of tangency to the sides , and be points , and , respectively. Let be the midpoint of . Then the lines , and are concurrent. Drag the locators , and to see that this holds for any triangle.

## Details

The incircle of a triangle is the circle contained in the triangle tangent to each of the three sides. Lines are concurrent if they all pass through a common point.

See [1] for the formulas AreaOfTriangle, Circumcircle and IntersectionofLines.

See [2] for the formulas Incircle and TangencyPoint.
