# The Perpendiculars

**Geometry**Level 4

In acute \(\triangle ABC,\) \(D, E, F\) are the feet of perpendiculars from \(A, B, C\) to \(BC, CA, AB\) respectively. Let \(P, Q, R\) be the feet of perpendiculars from \(A, B, C\) to \(EF, FD, DE\) respectively. It turns out that lines \(AP, BQ, CR\) are concurrent at a point \(X\) within \(\triangle ABC.\) Then, \(X\) is the:
