Given any triangle with sides \(a\), \(b\) and \(c\), and coordinates of vertices \((x_{1},y_{1})\), \((x_{2},y_{2})\) and \((x_{3},y_{3})\). What are the coordinates of its Gergonne point?

Use the section formula again to find the gergonne point. The formula comes out to be \(\frac {\displaystyle \sum_{cyc} (s-b)(s-c)A}{\displaystyle \sum_{cyc} (s-b)(s-c)}\). Here A is the complex number for the point A (this formula can easily be converted into cartesian form) – Pranav Kirsur · 1 year, 7 months ago
