### Which theorems have Pythagoras' Theorem as a special case?

Loomis famously wrote hundreds of proofs of Pythagoras' Theorem (reference below), but these are all basically proofs "from below". Today on Twitter @panlepan mentioned Carnot's theorem ...

### How big can a triangle be, whose sides are the perpendiculars to the sides of a triangle from the vertices of its Morley triangle?

Given any triangle $\varDelta$, the perpendiculars from the vertices of its (primary) Morley triangle to their respective (nearest) side of $\varDelta$ intersect in a triangle $\varDelta'$, which is ...

### The outer Nagel points and unknown central circle

Na, Nb, Nc are the outer Nagel points. A'B'C' is the contact triangle. I claim that lines A'B', A'C', B'C' always cut the sides of the triangle NaNbNc at six points corresponding to an unknown circle. ...

### An open triangle problem in plane geometry

Some years ago, I asked some 'famous' people in an advanced Plane Geometry forum about the following: Let $ABC$ be arbitrary triangle, how can one construct a point $P$ in the plane such that $P$ is ...

### Two triangles have the same centroid theorem

Let $\triangle ABC$ and $\triangle A'B'C'$ be two triangles. The line through $A$ and perpendicular to $AA'$ meets the line through $B'$ and perpendicular to $BB'$ at $A_b$; The line through $A$ and ...

### Are there infinitely many "generalized triangle vertices"?

Briefly, I'd like to know whether there are infinitely many "generalized triangle centers" which - like the orthocenter - are indistinguishable from a vertex of the original triangle. This ...

### Maximizing the area of a region involving triangles

I thought of a question while making up an exercise sheet for high school students, and posted it on MathStackExchange but did not receive an answer (the original post is here), so I thought perhaps ...

### Pseudo-Droz-Farny circles

I would like to present a construction of 2 circles. These 2 circles are somewhat similar in appearance to the well known Droz-Farny circles that can be drawn for every isogonal conjugate pairs of ...

### Three circles meet at a point [closed]

I am looking for the proof of the following proposition: Proposition. Let $\triangle ABC$ be an arbitrary triangle with circumcenter $O$. Let $A',B',C'$ be a reflection points of the points $A,B,C$ ...

### An new equilateral triangle related to the Morley triangle

Morley equilateral triangle is the nice theorem in Eulidean Geometry. I found an equilateral triangle and a group circle related to the Morley triangle and angle trisectors: Let $ABC$ be a triangle ...

### Are these points known? [closed]

Let $ABC$ be a triangle and $P$ be a point on the plane, $PA$, $PB$, $PC$ meet $BC$, $CA$, $AB$ at $A'$, $B'$, $C'$ respectively. From my construction by GeoGebra, I found two special points as ...
