Problem
Given circles and intersecting at points and , let be a line through the center of intersecting at points and and let be a line through the center of intersecting at points and . Prove that if and lie on a circle then the center of this circle lies on line .
Solution 1
Let be the circumcircle of , to be the radius of , and to be the center of the circle , where . Note that and are the radical axises of , and , respectively. Hence, by power of a point(the power of can be expressed using circle and and the power of can be expressed using circle and ), Subtracting these two equations yields that , so must lie on the radical axis of , .
