# Understand the problem

Ptolemy’s Theorem gives a relation between product of diagonals of a quadrilateral with the sum of the product of its opposite sides. However it can be proved using tools from inversive geometry (that Ptolemy probably did not know). Try this!

# Tutorial Problems… try these after watching the video.

1. How can you generalize Ptolemy’s theorem if the quadrilateral is not cyclic?? 2. Suppose two points A, B, are inside a unit circle G. Invert A and B about G to A’ and B’ respectively. If the length of AB is 0.5, what is the length of A’B’?
