The fourth harmonic point of a triangle is an invariant point under a certain geometric transformation. Given a triangle with and fixed, extend the segment to another fixed point . Draw a line through to intersect the line at and the line at . Let be the intersection of the lines and . Let the line intersect at . Then , called the fourth harmonic point, is invariant either by moving or changing the slope of the line .
