**Statement:** ABC be an isosceles triangle with AB = AC. P be a point inside the triangle such that, . Suppose M is the midpoint of BC. Show that

Diagram 1

**Discussion:**

Our first claim is, AB and AC are tangents to the circum circle of BPC (prove this). Also extend AP to meet the circum circle at G again. It is sufficient to show .

Diagram 2

Next we claim that IPCO and MPGO are cyclic (how?) .

Let

1. as MPGO is cyclic

2. as IPCO is cyclic

So

Also as OP = OC (radii), hence = =

Hence done.
