Side Divider Theorem for a Circumscribed/Tangential Quadrilateral
For a proof of the quadrilateral case, read my AMESA 1996 paper An interesting Side-Angle Duality in Geometry.
For a side-angle dual of this result involving the angle dividers of a cyclic quadrilateral go to Angle Divider Theorem for a Cyclic Quadrilateral.
For dynamic versions of the Angle & Side Divider cases for a Triangle go to Conway's Circle Theorem as special case of Side Divider Theorem.
Proofs of this result, its dual & of the generalizations, are given in Some Adventures in Euclidean Geometry as well as generalizations to circumscribed polygons with an even or odd number of sides. The book is available for purchase as a downloadable PDF, printed book or from iTunes for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and on your computer with iTunes.
