$P,Q,R,S$ are the centres of the four circles each of which is cut by a fixed circle orthogonally. If $I^{2}_1,I^{2}_2,I^{2}_3,I^{2}_4$ are the squares of length of tangents to the four circles from a point in their plane then

$a.$ $I^{2}_1\Delta QRS-I^{2}_2\Delta RSP+I^{2}_3\Delta SPQ-I^{2}_4\Delta PQR=0$

$b.$ $I^{2}_1\Delta QRS+I^{2}_2\Delta RSP-I^{2}_3\Delta SPQ+I^{2}_4\Delta PQR=0$

$c.$ $I^{2}_1\Delta QRS-I^{2}_2\Delta RSP+I^{2}_3\Delta SPQ-I^{2}_4\Delta PQR=-1$

$d.$ none of these Note by Anish Raj

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Could you explain the notation that you have used in the first three options?

- 4 years, 5 months ago

Those are notation of “triange”.

Even I know that.What I want to ask is what do we mean by $I1^2$triangle QRS.Does it mean square of tangent length from a fixed point to circumcircle of triangle QRS.
