# Proof Contest Day 4

In the triangle $$ABC$$ the point $$J$$ is the center of the excircle opposite to $$A$$. This excircle is tangent to the side $$BC$$ at $$M$$, and to the lines $$AB$$ and $$AC$$ at $$K$$ and $$L$$ respectively. The lines $$LM$$ and $$BJ$$ meet at $$F$$, and the lines $$KM$$ and $$CJ$$ meet at $$G$$. Let $$S$$ be the point of intersection of the lines $$AF$$ and $$BC$$, and let $$T$$ be the point of intersection of the lines $$AG$$ and $$BC$$. Prove that $$M$$ is the midpoint of $$ST$$.

Hint: There are cyclic shapes in the diagram. Prove that $$J$$ is the circumcenter of $$AST$$ · 1 year, 7 months ago
