Re: [EMHL] Fuss Theorem for Bicentric Quadrilateral
- Dear Prof. Nikolaos:
Thank you very much for answer me.
Perhaps I did not know how to explain the reason of my question.
The method that I developed does not use trigonometry. I like resolving with
the traditional methods of the euclidean geometry
The method that mentions the Prof. Paul Yiu in his e-book Euclidean
Geometry pag.159-161 also utilizes trigonometry.
Do I can use the inversion method?
Do you know another method without use trigonometry?
I will thank your answer
Juan Carlos Salazar
