Construct equilateral triangles BAD, BCE and CAF on the sides of a ΔABC, and reflect each of them respectively in sides BD, BE and CA. What do you notice about the triangle GHI formed by the centres of the reflected triangles A'BD, C'BE and F'CA?
Drag points A, B or C to dynamically change the figure.
