Problem 13
Triangle has side lengths , , and . Points and are on ray with . The point is a point of intersection of the circumcircles of and satisfying and . Then can be expressed as , where , , , and are positive integers such that and are relatively prime, and is not divisible by the square of any prime. Find .
Solution 1
Define to be the circumcircle of and to be the circumcircle of .
Because of exterior angles,
But because is cyclic. In addition, because is cyclic. Therefore, . But , so . Using Law of Cosines on , we can figure out that . Since , . We are given that and , so we can use Law of Cosines on to find that .
Let be the intersection of segment and . Using Power of a Point with respect to within , we find that . We can also apply Power of a Point with respect to within to find that . Therefore, .
Note that is similar to . . Also note that is similar to , which gives us . Solving this system of linear equations, we get . Now, we can solve for , which is equal to . This simplifies to , which means our answer is .
Solution 2
Construct and let . Let . Using , Using , it can be found taht This also means that . It suffices to find . It is easy to see the following: Using reverse Law of Cosines on , . Using Law of Cosines on gives , so .
