# 2019 IMO Problems/Problem 6

## Problem

Let be the incenter of acute triangle with . The incircle of is tangent to sides , , and at , , and , respectively. The line through perpendicular to meets again at . Line meets ω again at . The circumcircles of triangles and meet again at . Prove that lines and meet on the line through perpendicular to .

## Solution

**Step 1**

We find an auxiliary point

Let be the antipode of on where is radius

We define

is cyclic

An inversion with respect swap and is the midpoint

Let meets again at We define

Opposite sides of any quadrilateral inscribed in the circle meet on the polar line of the intersection of the diagonals with respect to and meet on the line through perpendicular to The problem is reduced to proving that

**Step 2**

We find a simplified way to define the point

We define and are bisectrices).

We use the Tangent-Chord Theorem and get

Points and are concyclic.

**Step 3**

We perform inversion around The straight line maps onto circle We denote this circle We prove that the midpoint of lies on the circle

In the diagram, the configuration under study is transformed using inversion with respect to The images of the points are labeled in the same way as the points themselves. Points and have saved their position. Vertices and have moved to the midpoints of the segments and respectively.

Let be the midpoint

We define

is triangle midline point lies on is parallelogram is midpoint

**Step 4**

We prove that image of lies on

In the inversion plane the image of point lies on straight line (It is image of circle and on circle

point lies on .
