Let ∆ABC be scalene, with BC as the largest side. Let

D

be the foot of the altitude from

A onto side BC. Let points

K and

L be chosen on the lines AB and AC respectively,

such that

D is the midpoint of segment KL. Prove that the

points B, K, C, L are concyclic if and only if

∠BAC = 90

@Vishwash Kumar i have already proved this you have to also prove the converse. that is not easy

@Neel Khare In your below post to calvin Lin , You had said that it is easy to prove that if B,K,C,L are concyclic THEN angle BAC=90 the converse (i.e , if angle BAC =90 then B,C,K,L are concyclic ) is not that easy.
