\(\triangle ABC\) is orthic triangle of the triangle whose vertices are ex-centers. To reverse the scenario, if we look at the orthic triangle of any given acute triangle, its angle bisectors are altitudes and sides of the reference triangle. This means that circumcirle of the orthic triangle is nine point circle of the reference triangle. Maria Kozlowska · 2 years ago
