Given a triangle , let be the circumcenter and be the symmedian point. These points determine the Brocard axis (shown in orange).


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 , , of length , , , respectively.

Let , let be the circumradius and let . When is the Brocard angle, .



You can drag the points , , and .
