Given that the abstract says

We offer a survey of some lesser known or new trigonometric proofs of the Steiner-Lehmus theorem.

It is not surprising that the proofs are more convoluted.

I believe that your proof is pretty standard for this result.

Can you link me any proof similar to mine ? By the way, I edited the link in the post to a much larger repository of Steiner Lehmus proofs.

Thanks for pointing it out, it is indeed using the same area decomposition technique. Yet, it doesn't really exploit the direct expression for angle bisector length.

It somehow reminds me of Cotangent Rule :P

Hmmm not exactly. Cotagent rule relates \( \theta_{1} \) and \( \theta_{2} \) with \( \overline{BD} \) and \( \overline{CD} \).

@Karthik Venkata Is your solution not similar to the

decomposition into ABE and ADCgiven in the PDF? .... .WELL DONE THOUGH :) – Abhinav Raichur · 1 year, 6 months agoLog in to reply
